    NSAIDs - Anti Inflammatory drugs, Rest, Supportive Shoes, Supplements

I took two months off due to runners knee. Once a week I'd do a very, very slow test run for a few miles, which the doctor said was fine since the X-rays looked fine (only some inflammation). Take a motrin, and rest.
After healing it all up, I also started taking glucosamine (Osteo Bi-Flex) and that seems to be helping me (knock on wood). No idea if it's a placebo effect, but it helps. Don't forget to ensure your shoes are in good shape or it'll possibly come back again. I go through a pair every 1.5weeks due to marathon training.
