Analgesics for Osteoarthritis—An Update

Slide: 27 of 32

Conclusions (1 of 2)

When analgesics are compared to each other, none appears to offer greater benefits relative to adverse effects a this time. Trade-offs between benefits and adverse effects appear to differ across analgesics, increasing the need to consider individual patient priorities when choosing among these medications. No significant differences were found in the benefits offered by NSAIDs; however, differences in GI adverse effects must be balanced with associated CV risks.
