No, these are just symptomatic treatment for pain and not for rh arthritis.
Ra factor also known as rheumatoid factor, is diagnostic of rheumatoid arthritis. If the person is having symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis which includes pain in multiple joint swelling stiffness and other likewise symptoms complete regimen is recommended, which includes methotrexate hydroxychloroquine sulfasalazine folvite it and some steroids for a short duration of time. Any other medication which is just a supplement which includes calcium vitamin d3 and multivitamin will not reduce the arthritis and inflammatory process process. Please consult an orthopaedic surgeon or allergist in person who will describe you the severity of the condition and will describe each and every medication in detail.

Rheumatoid factor (ra factor) is not a diagnostic investigation of rheumatoid arthritis rather it has some prognostic importance. It might be increased in a normal person who doesn't have any signs & symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis. It's very essential to know your symptoms before commenting to your medicines prescribed. It's better to consult a rheumatologist.
