Are there any OTC anti inflammatory meds?

Are there any OTC anti inflammatory meds?

Yes quite a few: Ibuprofen (sold in the us as motrin, advil) and Naproxen (sold as aleve) are both anti-inflammatories lasting eight and twelve hours respectively. They are often referred to as nsaids or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. In addition, old fashioned Aspirin works the same way. Acetaminophen (or paracetamol), sold as tylenol (acetaminophen) is not an NSAID and works differently. Does nothing for inflammation.
