Dear Madam,

Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX

Well looking into your problem I will like to tell you that chronic joint pain is very annoying but the medication is given in accordance with the etiology of joint pain .

Plus before prescribing any medication other comorbidities also needs to be taken into consideration . Still in my opinion paracetamol 650 mg is a safe option but you need to consult your treating physician for this.

Take care.
