Have you been on the edge of your seat all week? Wait no more! I’m back with the dirt on non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs! (And some bonus information on combination products—lucky you!)
Two weeks ago JaNae W. submitted the following request:
Explain the differences between Aleve, Excedrin, Tylenol and the other one I can’t remember. Maybe if I understood how they are different, I’d know which would be the best to use in any given situation. And what is in the PM variety to make it different.
Excellent question! And a big one. Or at least that’s what I have been telling myself to justify how long it has taken to finish this post. And to justify how long it turned out to be. Since I am sure no one else wants to read through all of this in one sitting I am splitting it into two posts—this week will cover the general background on pain relievers and the specifics on acetaminophen and next week we’ll get around to “the other ones.”
I was reflecting on the progress of this blog and I realized I hadn't ever fully explained what in the world I am doing. In the interest of clarity I have written...a mission statement. (It's actually more of a mission essay but that doesn't have the same ring to it.)
