Antirheumatics

What are Antirheumatics

Antirheumatics include drugs, which are used to treat the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and those that can modify the course of the disease. The drugs that help treat the symptoms such as pain and inflammation are aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and steroids. Drugs that can slow the progression of rheumatoid arthritis and help with pain, inflammation and stiffness are called disease modifying rheumatoid arthritis drugs (DMARDs).

A drug may be classified by the chemical type of the active ingredient or by the way it is used to treat a particular condition. Each drug can be classified into one or more drug classes.
