Osteoarthritis: care and management | Guidance and guidelines | NICE

This guideline update was originally intended to include recommendations based on a review of new evidence about the use of paracetamol, etoricoxib and fixed-dose combinations of NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) plus gastroprotective agents in the management of osteoarthritis. Draft recommendations based on the evidence reviews for these areas were presented in the consultation version of the guideline. Stakeholder feedback at consultation indicated that the draft recommendations, particularly in relation to paracetamol, would be of limited clinical application without a full review of evidence on the pharmacological management of osteoarthritis. NICE was also aware of an ongoing review by the MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency) of the safety of over-the-counter analgesics. Therefore NICE intends to commission a full review of evidence on the pharmacological management of osteoarthritis, which will start once the MHRA's review is completed, to inform a further guideline update.

Motilium is administrated for nausea but vomiting persist. When lft is done there is a slight increase of bilirubin i.e from 0.2 to 0.3. What is the possible cause of these excessive nauseous feelings? Administration of gag's and chondroiton sulphate or may be due to any problem with the liver function?

Hi everyone With so many DMARD's and biologicals available, which one(s) would be first-line therapy for a patient in, say, their forties? (Being 'medically raised' in a resource-limited setting, we don't explore the above options very often.)

Managing back pain and osteoarthritis without paracetamol

Paracetamol (acetaminophen) is a drug we are all familiar with. It is cheap, readily available over the counter, and is common place in family medicine cabinets across the world. We rely on it in the middle of the night to settle childhood fevers, and it is usually our first choice drug for a wide range of painful musculoskeletal disorders, including osteoarthritis and spinal pain. Yet new evidence in a linked paper by Machado and colleagues (doi:10.1136/bmj.h1225) casts doubt on the efficacy and safety of paracetamol and questions its place as our first choice analgesic.1
