I keep forgetting what the differences are in the over the counter pain relievers, so I made a handy chart.
I didn’t know about the menstrual cramps. I’ve been destroying my liver with 500mg Acetominophen this whole time…
I knew most of this but I just love handy charts! :)
Just to add to this: Acetaminophen (Tylenol) is the only one of these medications that has ever been tested on and proven safe for pregnant women. (Not that the others are necessarily dangerous; they’ve just never been tested. Ask your doctor/midwife/care provider if you want to know more.)
i tried naproxen for the first time yesterday on my cramps and it was the shit i was in heaven
Naproxen has seen some major tummy advances, too. It’s been approved as easy on the stomach (or so I was told by my doctor).
