Side effects: Different medications. If you're asking about benzo's and there is no hint of addiction then benzo's are in general quite safe physically. Nsaid's are a completely different class of drugs used for pain. Although very useful and effective they can have multiple side effects. Stomach problems, allergies heart , kidney , high blood pressure. But definitely an apples and oranges question.
