Hi, you are on supportive medications. Etoricoxib is for pain, Glucosamine to improve your cartilage. From that I gather that you are developing arthritis of the knees. The medicines are good and prescribed to help you, but I wouldn't recommend Etoricoxib for long term treatment. You will benefit from hot and cold compress, elastic knee support, Physiotherapy modalities like Diathermy and Ultrasonic and a thorough assessment by your Orthopaedician as to the severity of arthritis.

Hello.Etoricoxib is an anti-inflammatory and improve your discomfort but the important thing is to have a diagnosis of your affection.The traumatology specialist should request an knee radiograph and after if needed an MRI because if you have a meniscus or ligament affection is not visible on the radiograph. I wish good health.
