    Hello, Sorry about that. Is it both knees or just one of them? Have you been seeing any Doctor? If yes, what have you done about it, or what are you doing about it? I will await your reply.

    Sorry about that once again. Treating osteoarthritis can be challenging and you need to work with your Doctor by carrying him along on the progress to achieve optimal care. Arthrocare is a good drug, you don't have to stop it. You can also add some other analgesic e. g Diclofenac or ibuprofen for effective pain control. You can also try these non-pharmacologic methods -shed off excessive weight if you are obese -rest the leg from time to time by not standing on for long. If your work requires standing for long, you need to adjust to avoid putting so much weight on the knees. You should be fine with these interventions. Take care

    Thanks for the advise. I am not obessedand i am very slim. i will also continue with the arthocare. my work also requires sitting for long hours. Another question is how should i use the arthocare because the d surgeon didn't prescribe the daily usage. many thanks

    Use 1 tablet twice daily after food. Stop it if you are feeling any kind of abdominal discomfort and report to your Doctor. Okay? Take care
