For mild psoriatic arthritis, NSAIDs may be recommended. This medication refers to a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug or NSAID for short. The most common over-the-counter types of NSAIDs include many painkillers you may already take for head and muscle aches. However, you can also have your doctor prescribe you stronger painkillers. Be careful, though, because taking large doses of NSAIDs over an extended period can result in stomach bleeding, ulcers, strokes, and heart attacks.
