Hello and thanks for your question.
It's my first priority to help you.

I understand your concern.

Prescribed medicines for osteoarthritis may include

stronger versions of NSAID painkillers

Cox-2 drugs

Steroid injections

Hyaluronan injections

Narcotic pain relievers

Physical and Occupational Therapy for pain management.

If you have severe joint damage, severe pain, or very limited motion because of osteoarthritis, you may need surgery.

You need to see an Orthopedist for prescribed medicines.
