Abstract

43 patients with osteoarthritis of the knee and/or hip(s) were treated with suprofen 800 mg/day or ibuprofen 1,600 mg/day for 14 days. Both drugs produced an improvement in subjective symptoms by day 7, although the most rapid analgesic effect was obtained with suprofen. Patients receiving suprofen experienced a significantly greater improvement in pain on motion at day 7 than did patients taking ibuprofen. Patients and investigators evaluated both drugs as having good to very good efficacy in the great majority (over 75%) of cases. Both drugs were well tolerated, with only a single drug withdrawal in the ibuprofen group.
