Can you take Aspirin: The best solution to tendonitis is rest, ice and nsaids (non steroidal anti-inflammatories). Also, if it is on the outside or inside of the elbow it could be characterized as golfer's elbow or tennis elbow and can ebenfit from a brace. There is now NSAID in cream form -- this is called PENNSAID or voltaren; this is available by rx only though.
