In brief: Anti-inflammatories

Ibuprofen or Aleve (naproxen) are the two most common but there are several others that work through the same pathways to help inflammation.

In brief: All NSAIDs work

Pretty well. Over the counter i tend toward aleve (naproxen) because you only have to take one pill two times a day with food versus advil that you have i take multiple times per day.
Make sure you follow the directions warnings on the bottle when you take any med. Nsaids can cause bleeding, stomach upset.
