Are there any real benefits to herbs/supplements vs some over-the-counter drugs? Ie: melanin vs diphenhydramine, peppermint/catnip vs tylenol (acetaminophen)?

Some of them can be as effective too. ...Read more

Clarifying allergy ALL NSAIDs, need safe topical. Some natural ings act as NSAIDs. Is Topricin safe? Ingredients on topricin.com, tab in prod desc.

Depends: Since you did not mention nasal or sinus polyps, I presume that you do not have Aspirin exacerbated respiratory disease in which patients would react to all NSAIDs except Celebrex (celecoxib).

Psychedelic drugs, including psilocybin/psilocin get more toxic as we get older, because they can greatly increase heart rate and stress the cardiovascular system.
