Several choices: Patients allergic to Naproxen may also need to avoid Aspirin and other anti-inflammatories like ibuprofen. Tylenol (acetaminophen) is a good non-prescription choice for mild to moderate pain. More severe pain may require tramadol or even hydrocodone (vicodin).

Try tylenol (acetaminophen): Other options include steroids, tramadol, narcotics etc. Ask your dr. Try over the counter glucosamine-chondroitin, capzasin /bengay cream, garlic tabs, apple cider vinegar etc. Google online for herbal meds for arthritis. Exercise. Stay young and avoid getting older! take care!
