    There are multiple options available for arthritic pain caused by osteoarthritis. One option is acetaminophen 325 mg, or Tylenol, 1-2 tablets by mouth every 4-6 hours as needed for pain. You should not exceed 3 g of acetaminophen for day. Acetaminophen is also not a good choice for someone with liver disease or injuries. Another option is ibuprofen 200 mg 1-2 tablets by mouth every 4-6 hours as needed for pain. You should not exceed 1200 mg in a day. Ibuprofen is not a good option for someone on anticoagulation therapy or with GI bleeding or kidney injury. Other options are topical, such as Voltaren gel. Voltaren gel should be applied to the affected joints using the included dosing card up to 4 times daily. A dose of 2 grams is appropriate for upper joints, such as the hands or elbow, and 4 grams for lower joints, such as the knee. If your pain is severe, causes morning stiffness, or severely impairs your daily life, contact your doctor as it may be something more severe.

    You massage strongly where the pain is.  Aspirin can be used, if necessary.

    Ibuprofen can work. Or Naproxen. Naproxen lasts for 8-12 hours, whereas pain relief from Ibuprofen lasts for 4-6 hours.
