Stick With Acetaminophen as First-Line Therapy for Osteoarthritis
You'll hear debate about using acetaminophen for osteoarthritis.
This is coming from recent analyses that suggest acetaminophen is not as effective for osteoarthritis as we originally thought.
But other evidence suggests acetaminophen IS still effective for mild to moderate pain. Plus it's less risky than opioids...or NSAIDs in patients with renal, GI, or cardiac risks.
