Hi and thanks for the query.You should give the anti inflammatory medication at least 7 days for maximum effect. You mention that the pain has gotten better that means they have already started to work. Warm compresses and massage will benefit.Please do rate the answer by clicking on the stars on the top right corner of the screen.Regards.
