Medications for Osteoarthritis?

I have osteoarthritis in my right ankle and was wondering if anyone can recommend the best pain medication for it. I did have the opioids based medication, but stopped taking them as they were making me ill.

Please talk to you doctor about this vs. asking for help from strangers. I beg of you!! I would hate to tell you what works for me--like an over the counter thing or some other concoction or such and, you try it and get ill, or hurt, or G-d forbid, die from it. OMG, that would be horrible.

Everyone is different and has different co-morbid conditions, allergies, and situations, what works for me, may kill you and vice versa.

Medical stuff is best left to the professionals. I say this with all respect and kindness to protect you from harm!

If you can't afford to go to the doctor, which I know plagues many of us, there are free clinics out there. If you have insurance it can help with costs also.

If you have insurance and can't afford the copays, call the number on the back of your insurance card and ask for help finding a free clinic or see if there are free care funds you can tap into or see if they have a nurse line that may be able to help where you call and ask your question for free and they can guide you. Those lines are staffed by RNs/LPNs who know the right questions to ask.

Sending up lots of healing thoughts and prayers for you. Arthritis is so painful!! I hope you find your best solution soon!!

This is a question for your doctor, especially if you are on any other medication.

I certainly agree that you should consult your doctor about any medications.

If you use the same pharmacy to fill your prescriptions, you may be able to talk to the pharmacist to see if they can recommend something until you see your doctor.
Your pharmacist should be able to check your medications to be sure there would be no conflict between your prescribed meds and any over the counter meds they might recommend.
Just be sure the pharmacists knows (and has on file) anything you are allergic to.
