What is the role of acetaminophen for treating osteoarthritis? Bottom line: Acetaminophen (APAP) is an effective and relatively safe treatment modality for osteoarthritis, although NSAIDs generally provide superior pain relief (SOR: A, systematic review). However, APAP may be a reasonable initial oral agent for mild-to-moderate pain (SOR: C, conflicting expert opinions).
