What are the Best OTC Pain Relievers?

Painkillers are essential medications. Pain can become a surprise for any person, even a healthy one. Unpleasant sensations in the back, headache, and toothache – this is not the whole list of problems that a person can have. Anesthetics can alleviate unpleasant symptoms. Most painkillers are sold without a prescription, and therefore it is very important to choose the right analgesics.

The three most common over-the-counter analgesics available at Canadian Pharmacy Mall are Motrin, Tylenol, and Diclofenac.

These are effective and at the same time relatively safe pain medications. Before using any painkiller, we advise you to carefully read not only the specific purposes of the drug but also its possible side effects, as well as contraindications. Let’s review the best uses for each.

The Best Sellers Among Pain KillersCanadian Health Care Mall pain killers

1. Motrin

motrinMotrin is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug with analgesic and antipyretic effects.

Indications: Rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthrosis, psoriatic arthritis, sciatica, shoulder-scapular periarthritis, mild or moderate pain syndrome (with soft tissue injuries, algodismenorrhea), headache and toothache; painful menstruation.

Action: Motrin affects immune processes, disrupting the recognition of specific signals by the receptors of lymphocytes and thymocytes. The anti-inflammatory effect occurs by the end of the first week of treatment. The drug significantly reduces pain syndrome, including joint pain at rest and during movement, increases the volume of movements, reduces morning stiffness and swelling of the joints.

2. Tylenol

Combined Pain Relievers: Complex but Effective

The central component of most combined analgesics from Canadian Pharmacy Mall is usually paracetamol. A safe preparation, which is sometimes mistakenly classified as a group of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, has several effects: moderate analgesic, antipyretic, and anti-inflammatory. Paracetamol is a fairly strong analgesic even in its pure form, and with additional components, its quality is enhanced. As a rule, combined analgesics, which include paracetamol, are used to relieve pain in catarrhal diseases. We offer the following combined painkillers:

  1. Movexx Plus (Aceclofenac & Paracetamol);
  2. Zupar (Paracetamol & Ibuprofen);
  3. Pentagesic (Diclofenac & Paracetamol);
  4. Nervz-G (Methylcobalamin & Gabapentin).

All of these drugs effectively eliminate pain and have a low price. Which pain reliever to choose? See a comparative table below which will help you choose the right medicine:
