No. That's why NSAIDS or COX-2 inhibitors are prescribed, along with antibiotics, to prevent joint damage. Once deformed, it's for life. rheumatoid arthritis is diagnosed, through a number of blood tests like: - Antistreptolysin-O (ASO); - C-Reactive protein (CRP); - Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR); - Rheumatoid factor (RF); - Immunoglobulin?s A, E, and G; - Complement 3 (C-3). Antibiotics like Minocin, NSAIDs, COX-2 inhibitors, acetaminophen, codeine, and statins are all used to control inflammation and relieve the pain of arthritis.
