In brief: Lots

Start out with the basics like nsaids such as advil, (ibuprofen) alleve, motrim as these have more of anti inflammatory components.
Prescription narcotics are sometimes based on severity of ra. But overall, you want to prevent the flares by immunosuppressants. A rheumatologist would be best person to consult.
