In brief: NSAIDs

Well the best is the least strength medication you can use to reduce your pain.
I would suggest, stretching/strengthening and icing knee and using an ibuprofen/aleve/tylenol medications first. If they don't help, the consider evaluation by sports medicine doctor to see why you are hurting.
