MANY ANSWERS: I wish i could tell you exactly what to take, but that is diificult without knowing what type of arthritis a patient has. There are over 140 types of arthritis and the type of arthritis dictates what therapy is necessary. Further information on the arthritis type is necessay for more specific answers.
