Managing the Symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis


There are some diseases that have no cure. Rheumatoid arthritis is one of them. The most ideal outcome of the treatment process is to achieve remission of symptoms. This is the usual goal of medication for conditions like rheumatoid arthritis. As a trusted specialty pharmacy in Florida, we provide specialty medication for chronic and complex health conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis.

A reliable provider of pharmaceutical services such as our pharmacy can help patients manage the symptoms of their conditions. For rheumatoid arthritis, here are the usual medications that help with the symptoms:

  • Disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs)

    This kind of medication slows the progress of the disease and protects the joints and other tissues from further damage. You can ask the pharmacist at our compounding pharmacy to explain more about the different kinds of DMARDs.

  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)

    These drugs help relieve pain and reduce inflammation. There are over-the-counter and prescription types of this medication. It is important to ask about the expected side effects such as stomach irritation and kidney damage at your trusted retail pharmacy.

  • Steroids

    This kind of drug also helps reduce inflammation, manage pain, and slow joint damage. This requires a prescription from a doctor and is only taken for a limited period.
