I have always used ibuprofin.....but I am not sure why. My question is: Do you use aspririn, tylenol, advil, aleive, excedren???? Is there a reason you have chosen to use this particular medicine?

I use either ibuprofen (motrin, advil, or just generic ibuprofen) or tylenol, depending on what is bothering me. Tylenol generally works well for headaches, so I usually take it when I have a headache. Ibuprofen is great for soreness or muscle aches, so that is what I take for those things. Otherwise I just kind of choose one and hope it works! I never really take aspirin for anything. I used to take excedrin for headaches, but I find that it makes me feel kind of shaky. I drink coffee and consume other caffeine, so I don't think it's the caffeine in the excedrin that makes me feel that way. Whatever it is, I don't like the way it makes me feel.

I have not used pain relievers in absolute ages. I cant even remember the last time I used them, let alone the name. I ve got a headaech a couple of times, but it just went away after an hours rest.

I use ibuprofin for swelling or a headache that just won't go away, probably because of swelling from sinus problems. For pain I use Naproxin(aleve).

I usually use Aleve. Why??? Aleve relieves my pain much faster & much more efficiently. Taken in a high dosage, Aleve will even get rid of Sciatica Many years back I took Tylenol & then realized that it wasn't working. So, I switched to Advil until that didn't work. Aleve has never failed me!!!

Most of the time I use paracetamol and I find it very effective because after taking and in just few minutes the aches are gone.

I hardly used modern medicine, my body is not really compatible with them. I used to have gastric due to my many medicines for my tuberculosis. So, I'll try to find any herbs medicine that I can use or just go to sleep. If I am out of option, a paracetamol is all that I can take.
