Anything besides NSAIDS for joint pain?


Question from AnneinMD: I have moderate to severe joint pain. We are not sure if it is from tamoxifen or from menopause (39 at diagnosis, lumpectomy, Epirubicin, Taxotere, and radiation). I cannot take the NSAIDs, even the coated ones, due to stomach problems. Is there anything else I can take?
Answers - Michelle Rhiner Don't underestimate the effectiveness of Tylenol for bone pain or joint pain. Even the use of an extended relief form of acetaminophen, such as Tylenol Arthritis Strength, can be helpful in these situations.
