Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are medicines you can take for pain relief. They are often sold over the counter. This means you can buy them without a prescription from your doctor. Some common brand names are Advil, Motrin, or Aleve. But these medicines are available by prescription, as well. At Beyond Podiatry, we can provide prescriptions for these medications depending on your specific needs. Most often, NSAIDs are used to address conditions such as gout and certain tendon or muscle injuries.
