Agree, but do not take the ibuprofen on an empty stomach. Stop if you get an upset stomach.

Otc meds can be very effective.
Acetaminophen is generally safe, but should not be used by people with liver problems and should not be combined with alcohol. Otc anti-inflammatories like Naproxen and Ibuprofen are good, but can upset the stomach. Folks with ulcers, bleeding problems, kidney problems, high blood pressure should avoid them. If in doubt, check with your doctor.
