Suggest treatment for knee arthritis
I hope your knee feels better soon , your medication is fine and with minor side effects only when used for long times .
Hi i am Dr Ahmed Aly
thanks for using HealthcareMagic site ,
I had gone through your question and understand your concerns ..
In my opinion you have to treat the underlying cause whether gout , rheumatoid arthritis , trauma or even obesity .
Your medication for the glucosamine and chondroitin supplements is fine , painkillers ( NSAIDs )like tyleno 400mgl tabs when needed , hot massaging with topical anti-inflammatory gels , will be fine in most of cases .
Steroid tabs or injections are prescribed in more chronic or severe cases , try to avoid heavy lifting , over weighing , vigorous movements , bad sitting or sleeping postures will be helpfu;.
Your medication side effects may be like bloating , heart burns , headache , drowsiness , constipation , itching ,buffing of eyelids nothing more serious .
If pain persists i recommend further investigations and follow gthem up with me or with your orthopedic for proper evaluation and management .

Exercises include simple stretches, quad stretches, standing calf
Exercises include simple stretches, quad stretches, standing calf, all of them strengthen muscles surrounding your knee joint but be aware of over exertion and ask your doctor or your chiropractor for best results.
Healthy food containing enough bananas for potassium, milk for calcium, avoid excess salts and proteins in your meals and always maintain a high fluid intake to avoid dehydration.
Sciatica due to nerve compression or sacral roots mostly affect your knees, follow these instructions and you'd be fine.
Wish you good health
