Both the same: Read the labels carefully and don't exceed recommended dosage and duration, if you have a chronic problem and you need to take those type of medications a lot, better see your doctor for evaluation, acetaminophen can be a good alternative too, which doesn't cause stomach or kidney problems, however may harm the liver in high doses, wish you well
