Acetaminophen VS. Ibuprofen: Knowing the Difference Doesn’t Have to Be a Pain
June 08, 2018
Whether you were experiencing a headache, muscle aches, menstrual cramps or a low-grade fever, chances are you reached into your medicine cabinet for an over-the-counter pain reliever.
Tylenol, Advil and Motrin are common name-brand pain relievers that are readily available at your local drugstore. While it may be easy to mix up these different medications or to simply assume they are the same, it’s important to choose the right one to ease your pain.
If you are still unsure which medication is right for you, or if you have a low-grade fever or pain that persists for several days, consult your primary care provider.
