OTC analgesics include: Acetaminophen (Tylenol)
OTC NSAIDs include: Aspirin, naproxen (Alleve), and ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin)
Prescription analgesics include: Phenazopyridine (Pyridium), Tramadol (Ultram) and Methadone.
Acetaminophen (Tylenol) is good for relieving pain and fever. It is less irritating to the stomach than other over-the-counter pain medications and is safer for children. It can, however, be toxic to the liver if you take more than the recommended dose.
Aspirin, naproxen (Alleve), and ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) are examples of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). These reduce inflammation caused by injury, arthritis, or fever. NSAIDs also relieve pain associated with menstruation.
