Ibuprofen IS an NSAID which stands for non steroidal anti inflammatory drug. Tylenol (if taken in large doses is bad on your liver) IS the safest pain killer out there. Moderation is the key. If you need something everyday, you have something underlying going on and need to see your dr. None of these drugs.
And, it’s the most widely used NSAID. Do you know your meds? ***unlike Tylenol. What? Ibuprofen absoluy IS an NSAID, just like Tylenol.
That’s why it’s not used alone to treat any disease with inflammation (rheumatoid arthritis, pancreatitis, etc). Ibuprofen is a NSAID (NON-STEROIDAL ANTI INFLAMMATORY DRUG). Actually, it’s the opposite. Tylenol is not.
Wrong! Tylenol is NOT an NSAID. Ibuprofen is !.
Tami – you are right Ibuprofen IS an NSAID however Tylenol is not.
Tylenol is not a NSAID, Ibuprofen is.
