Acetaminophen Not Effective For Arthritis

March 21, 2016

According to research published last week in The Lancet, a highly regarded medical journal, acetaminophen given to older adults with osteoarthritis provided no more pain relief than a placebo.

 

The reseach involved looking at 74 studies with over 58,000 participants.  

 

The study showed that several drugs were effective in reducing pain, notably the following commercially marketed NSAIDs: Voltaren, Cambia, Cataflam, Aleve, Naprosyn, Motrin, Advil and Nuprin.

 

Arcoxia and Vioxx, currently only available in Europe, were also found to be effective.  Vioxx was taken off the US market in 2004 due to cardiac-related deaths linked to the drug.
