Big toe arthritis study
As a participant in this study we recommend that you use paracetamol (Panadol®), up to 4 grams/day, as a pain-relieving medication if it is necessary during the study period (12 months). You must attempt to not use any other treatment for your big-toe joint pain during the study period. However, if you do not obtain sufficient pain relief with this approach, you are free to use other treatments or take other medication as you require. It is possible that limiting the amount of (or altering) pain medication or treatment may cause an increase in pain in your big-toe joint(s).
