NSAIDs : Assuming the arthritis being asked about is osteoarthritis.....The most common first line medicine is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (nsaid). Many fall in this category including naprosyn, (naproxen) ibuprofen, diclfenac, etc. If these medications and physical therapy fail, then injections with local anesthetics and corticosteroids are often recommended.
