What is the best anti-inflammatory medicine?


Answer by  wmgcgirl12 (293)

Traditional over the counter NSAIDs containing ibuprofen get my vote. I have fibromyalgia and have been using them for years and they still do the job for me.


Answer by  jamieellison (1637)

Anti-inflammatory medicines come in steroid and non-steroid groupings and each is better for specific outcomes. Some commonly known non-steroidal anti-inflammatories are aspirin such as Bayer, ibuprofen such as Advil or naproxen such as Aleve. While over-the-counter medications, often you need to use them at prescription strength to gain the anti-inflammatory benefits.


Answer by  DaveJones2 (9)

One of the best anti-inflammatory medications is Naproxen or naproxen sodium. It does not require a prescription and can be purchased over-the-counter in generic form or under brand names, such as Aleve. One dose, a single tablet, can last up to 12 hours.

Every anti-inflammatory has side effects so saying which one is best is difficult. I can say that aspirin is the better of all of them but bleeding in the stomach and/or bruising is still a possibility. BenGay or any thing you can apply to the skin can help and cold packs work with little side effects

The best is otc nsaids. Better known as Over-the-Counter (no prescription necessary) Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs. Corticosteroids also work, but require a physician consultation, and a prescription. Aspirin, Ibuprofen (Advil and Motrin), Naproxen Sodium (Aleve), and acetominophen (Tylenol and Panadol). Aspirin is quite inexpensive, and has been around for many years. All of these medications do have side effects.

NSAID's, non-steroidical anti-inflammotry drugs (e. g. Ibuprofen), these medicin will both stop the fever, release you from having that much hurt, and are of course also anti-inflammatory as the name says. In the research it has also been proofed that these medicin are quite save, to most of the people.
