Your prescribed medication will be dispensed and sent discreetly to you as soon as we have received your prescription.
There are two main types of arthritis, known as Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis, affecting millions of people around the globe. This condition frequently affects people over the age of 50 and is more commonly found in women. Osteoarthritis damages the smooth cartilage lining within the joint, leading to thinning and erosion. In turn, this causes stiffness, swelling and bones in the joint to rub together. Osteoarthritis commonly affects the joints in the hands, hips, spine and knees.
