  1. Hi Dr,
    I have a osteoarthritis in my knee, can’t seat on floor and in chair. I have rhumetoid arthritis positive in blood report but no symptoms yet. So my the otolaryngologist did not put me on any medication. My mom went to India and Dr from kottakal proscribed rhukot, yograj guggul and rasnai ranadi kawath tablets for me which my mom brought for me. But I just saw that there is ostikot medicine for osteoarthritis. Should buy and take it along with other medicines that Dr from kottakal proscribed or no need to?
