Rheumatoid Arthritis Drugs
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a progressive inflammatory disease that affects the joints. It gets worse over time unless the inflammation is stopped or slowed. Only in very rare cases does rheumatoid arthritis go into remission without treatment.
Arthritis medications play an essential role in controlling the progression and symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis. Starting treatment soon after diagnosis is most effective. And the best medical care combines rheumatoid arthritis medications and other approaches.
You may take rheumatoid arthritis medications alone, but they are often most effective in combination. These are the main types of RA medications:
- Disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs)
- Biologic response modifiers (a type of DMARD)
- Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs)
- Analgesics (painkillers)
