How We Can Help
Pseudogout Treatment Information
Treatment options for pseudogout include:
- Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). These medications, which come in in over-the-counter and prescription versions, can help alleviate pain and swelling causes by pseudogout.
- Joint aspiration. In this treatment we use a needle to remove fluid from a swollen joint.
- Corticosteroids. Injecting a synthetic hormone into an inflamed joint can help to reduce swelling and pain.
