    i had the same reactions to those medications. it's a tough road to learn our limitations as we suffer from osteo. depending on what joint if knee, hips, ankles -joint replacement offers better mobility and improved quality of life.

      thankyou for your reply.

      i have osteoarthritis in my spine and in right knee , fingers and both feet also neck so i am suffering badly with pain , nothing really helps me . i really feel like giving up as i can't live with this constant pain . doctors are so quick just to fob you off with any medication especially antidepressants which i do take .
