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.

Which anti inflammatory is best for immediate pain relief that lasts...ibuprofen 800mg or meloxicam 15mg?

Ibuprofen stays in your system for about 2-4 hours for the first dose. I like naproxen it takes about 60 min for peak effect and lasts about 12-17 hrs.
