The longer answer is "it depends" on the type of arthritis one has.
For osteoarthritis or other no -inflammatory forms of disease tylenol (acetaminophen) works best.
For more inflammatory diseases, if an anti inflammatory medication is deemed needed, Celebrex is safest for the stomach. One should also use a drug to protect the stomach known as a ppi ( proton pump inhibitor).
