      The only thing that works for me is Alleve - I don't get headaches, but if I had a very hectic day and my mind is buzzing at bed-time, one of these babies will put me down. Ain't drugs grand? (oh yeah - and anabolic steroids - they're great for an after-workout buzz!)

        USA-based question? I have never seen any of those in the Apotek here. For me, I choose Alvedon, as it dampens the aches second-best to icing. Alvedon is manufactured by AstraZeneca.

          I seem to be immune to effect or side-effects, positive or negative, of any over-the-counter pain remedies, so I just don't take em.
          Even prescribed arthritis medication is ineffective... about the only thing I react to is Mexican food.. gives me indigeston..

            I picked other, but I rarely take any medicine.

              Perhaps it would have been better to list the active ingredients: ASA (Aspirin), Acetaminophen (Tylenol), or Other. I chose other, because I tend to take Ibuprofen (Advil or generic variety). I tried Naproxen Sodium (Aleve) for a bit, but it didn't really do anything for me.

              The residents of Canada have an advantage with acetaminophen-based pain relievers, though: over the counter tylenol with codeine. Whenever we're north of the border, we tend to pick up a few bottles. They do wonders for migrane-level pain, or posture-related neck/headaches.

                i think this is vicodin(or however it is spelled), very tricky...im an advil man myself, but tried to stop taking it so much when my stomach started acting up on me. otherwise, i try to just rub a bit of tiger balm on the sore area and everything is just fine

                  In the US Alvedon is known as Tylenol.

                    I take one aspirin a day for its supposed blood thinning effect (Pego - I take regular ones - 325mg, should I take baby ones?). Try to avoid the others because I read they can bugger up your liver. Today, at work, we had a guy who hadn't eaten for 24 hours; he has a bad back and had taken a vicadon. Fainted in the parking lot and fell over and hit his head - had to call the paramedics.

                      For headaches, pain, nausea, and DyeStat, I prefer my morphine drip.

                        It really does not matter. If your stomach tolerates 325, that would be it, if it's bothered, switch to baby strength 65-100 or better, get the enteric coated kind.

                        And now, let me put my preacher hat on. Since most of the audience here are middle age or better males, this is your admonition.
                        There is absolutely no doubt that an aspirin-a-day reduces fairly significantly the chances for vascular events (heart attacks, strokes) in middle age and better males. So, all of you, from now on an aspirin-a-day. That's an order.
                        Mojo, ladies, it is not nearly as effective for the female physiology.

                          pego, normal recommendations are for 75mg dispersible every day - the 325 strength is associated with higher incidents of GI bleeds

                          also, i read an interesting article a while back of aspirin use in patients with no cardiovascular risk factors - indeed the incidence of strokes & MIs were reduced by 10% in this group, but unfortunately the incidence of GI bleeds increased by 20% ! ( i'll have to try & dig up this article - i believe it was done in australia ), so you may be protected from strokes & MIs, but you may end up bleeding to death from a stomach ulcer as the downside

                          the guidelines i follow are that you should only take daily aspirin if you have a significant cardiovascular risk ( a history of hypertension,angina,MI, thrombo-embolic stroke, diabetes ( with normal renal function ) ) - "normal", healthy middle-aged people have no justification in taking aspirin, in view of possible GI side-effects

                            The GI symptoms can be virtually totally eliminated by taking enteric coated aspirin, regardless of the dose or an antacid. I support the policy of ALL middle age and better males to take one aspirin a day. I DO!

                              the symptoms of dyspepsia may be reduced, but the risk of GI bleed is the same ( GI bleed is dependent on systematic prostaglandin inhibition, not a local effect ) - maybe even a worse case scenario - you may have no stomach symptoms at all with the enteric-coated version, but suddenly develop a bleeding ulcer - at least with the dispersible you may get some stomach symptoms as a warning
