Answer

Analgesics, Other

Analgesics such as acetaminophen may be used in patients with RA.

Acetaminophen (Tylenol)

Acetaminophen is used for analgesia in patients with documented hypersensitivity to aspirin or NSAIDs, those with upper GI disease, and those who are taking oral anticoagulants. This agent does not have anti-inflammatory properties.
