Hi Melissa, I just went through a period of trying different NSAIDS because what I was taking didn't seem to control my joint pain (piroxicam), come to find out it was doing more than I thought. The plaquenil also helps my joint pain too and I am also on Flexerill which helps my lower back and stiffness in the mornings. Give the plaq more time to work, maybe it will do more than you think, did for me.
I've taken Relafan and it was very rough on me, had terrible diarrhea, cramps, etc. Then recently tried Ketoprophen, it worked well and is comparable to Piroxicam. Recently tried Mobic, it did nothing for me, Suldinac which helped a little but not as much as I would like and Celebrex which I had to stop after 2 days because of the stabbing pain in my stomach. There are literally hundreds of NSAIDS out there, I hope you find one that works well for you and you find some relief soon! Take care
