In brief: Depends....

There are medications or other modalities which are used in managing swelling around the knee.
Medications such as Ibuprofen or naprosyn (naproxen) are useful, but you should be aware of the potential side effects of these medications, particularly for extended use. Ice is often your best friend when suffering from swelling around the knee. The best treatment is to treat the cause of the swelling.
