If you often have RA pain, get these four drugs handy. 1.NSAIDs This type of drug reduces pain and inflammation but do not slow down RA. The common two are ibuprofen and naproxen. 2.DMARDs “DMARDs” means disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs. They help slow or stop RA from getting worse. 3. Biologics Biologics are recommended when DMARDS are not effective. They may slow or stop RA. 4. Steroids It helps ease the pain and stiffness of affected joints.   Related FAQs: http://healthtopquestions.com/?p=1430 http://healthtopquestions.com/?p=1434 http://healthtopquestions.com/?p=1231
