Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) reduce inflammation, which helps to ease joint pain and stiffness. Some commonly used NSAIDs are available to buy over the counter. Stronger types are only available on prescription. Coxibs, a newer type of NSAIDs, were designed to reduce inflammation but with fewer side-effects, particularly on the digestive system. Coxibs are only available on prescription.
