What's the most effective over the counter pain reliever?

Depends

Motrin
It depends on any other problems you may have, but in the absence of liver disease tylenol in recommended amounts and in the absence of kidney or stomach trouble, ibuprofen or naproxen are effective. Ibuprofen or naproxen is proabably better than tylenol for pain, especially arthritic pain. Neither should be used in large amounts or for a prolonged period of time without consulting a physician.

Which over the counter pain reliever works best after tooth extraction?

Ibuprofen

Head-teeth
Ibuprofen 600-800mg taken every six hours works great. If allergic to aspirin, NSAIDs or are taking blood thinners ask your doctor first. Acetaminophen (paracetamol) 650mg every 6 hours will help, but will NOT control the inflammation that causes the pain. If needed, you can take BOTH if you don't exceed 3200mg ibuprofen or 3000mg acetaminophen per day. Talk to your dentist for specific help.

Dr. Ajay Dhankhar answered:

Which over the counter pain reliever (other than tylenol) works best after tooth extraction?

Ibuprofen hands down

General_practitioners
All literature points to Ibuprofen being the most effective anti inflammatory drug of the NSAIDS for dental extractions. Pain is best controlled when relieved at the site of origin. The narcotics on the other hand are central acting and helpful when peripheral control is insufficient. Do not exceed 3200mg in a day for average weighing adult.
