In brief: Its Relative

Strength depends on what's causing the pain.
If its not inflammation, Tylenol (acetaminophen) may work.Generally, the strongest non-prescription pain meds would be considered NSAIDS like Advil (ibuprofen) or Aleve (naproxen). Capsaicin also works well for some problems (ex. Salon Pas patches).
