Hello from JustAnswer. This is Dr. Love.
There are a number of other anti-inflammatory medicines that are manufactured, but only the ibuprofen is available over the counter. Paracetamol can be used in addition to the ibuprofen, but it does not have a direct action to relieve inflammation.
There are some supplements that can be tried, such as omega-3 fish oil or turmeric, but these are not true anti-inflammatory medicines.
It is also true that the application of moist heat also can help to ease inflammation, so can be used to augment the other medicines.
If I can provide any clarification, please let me know.
You are very welcome.
