I keep forgetting what the differences are in the over the counter pain relievers, so I made a handy chart.
I didn’t know about the menstrual cramps. I’ve been destroying my liver with 500mg Acetaminophen this whole time…
Aleve does nothing for me any more. It used to be great and I’d use it for migraines… but I went through a time where I didn’t take it for years and now it has no effect on me. I don’t know why.
I like how acetaminophen is the least effective for everything and it’s the only one I’m allowed to take. Thanks Lexapro
(Lexapro comes with this huge warning not to take NSAIDs while taking it, because of the havoc you can wreak on your stomach that way. Oddly, every psychiatrist I’ve mentioned this to has been like “I’ve never heard that!” Well, it’s on the fucking PI sheet, which maybe you should read if you’re going to prescribe this shit.)
