In brief: Ibuprofen (Motrin)

or Aleve (naproxen) are the typical OTC meds for arthritis.
Tylenol (acetaminophen) can also be used.

In brief: Topicals

Some people get good arthritis relief from topical creams and ointments such as capsaisin or bengay.
Oral glucosamine helps some also..

In brief: Several choices

Alleve (naproxen), Motrin (ibuprophen), tylenol (acetaminophen) (acetomenophin)! aspirin is useful and works quick.
Everyone should know that if you are using Aspirin for heart protection, ibuprophen and naproxen, block the cardioprotective effect of asa.
