A 40-year-old member asked:

What is better to relieve lower back pain: ibuprofin, paracetomol or voltaren (diclofenac)?

Depends: Ibuprofen and voltaren (diclofenac) are related and theoretically would affect low back pain the same way. Paracetamol or Acetaminophen is less likely to work because it doesn't have anti inflammatory effects.
