Answer

No medical treatment presently exists to reverse or alter the course of beta-2 amyloidosis. Low-dose steroids and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are symptomatic approaches to ameliorating joint pain and inflammation. Medications used include the following:

  • Prednisone - Immunosuppressive agent
  • Triamcinolone - Immunosuppressive agent
  • Capsaicin topical -Topical analgesic
  • Ibuprofen -NSAID
  • Sulindac – NSAID
