Avoid Side Effects of Over-the-Counter Pain Relievers
If you have the impression over-the-counter (OTC) painkiller side effects are nothing to be concerned about, think again! Nonprescription pain medications are some of the most widely used drugs in the world. Over-the-counter (OTC) pain relief drugs are often contain either:
- Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) found in aspirin, ibuprofen, Advil, Motrin, Aleve, Nuprin, and other medications.
- Acetaminophen found in Tylenol, Panadol, and other generic pain relievers.

Worrying and dangerous side effects of these common drugs are well documented. Reacting to growing public concern, the USA FDA is tightening warning label requirements and demanding clarification of maximum doses.

Uneducated consumers could easily overdose by accidentally combining several medications.
