In brief: Depends

On what you mean by "joints maintence drugs" many otc fda non regulated preparations have been purported to have positive effects on osteo or rheumatoid arthritis by the multibillion dollar suppliment industry.
Most do not work, and are a total waste of money. If you are referring to rx. Nsaia, ie prescription antiimflammatants, then the answer is yes. These drugs have been shown to be effective.
