How often do you work out? Is the arthritis only in your wrist?
You can increase the interval between each weight lifting session for a longer rest period if you don't want to reduce the weights you use. If you work out everyday, workout every other day and so on.
Also you can take supplements like glucosamine and chondritin together for joint health improvement. It won't solve your arthritis, but it will help you more.
Definitely don't stop working out. Stronger muscles will help in joint mobility and range of motion. If it's mainly in your wrists, you can switch to cardio exercises where you use your lower body more. They are equally beneficial in helping to maintain stronger muscles.
