Are there medications I can take for my hip?
The most common medications used for hip disorders are anti-inflammatories like ibuprofen or naproxen. These medications reduce pain by decreasing the inflammation within the hip and surrounding tissues. Some patients take glucosamine and chondroitin supplements and ask if these will help their hip. There is no evidence that these supplements will significantly reduce hip pain, but there is also little research in this area.
