Learning About The Two Main OTC Painkillers And Their Side Effects    

Paracetamol And Ibuprofen Address Pain, But Work In Different Ways    

The two main OTC painkillers for a headache are paracetamol and ibuprofen. They have different ways of addressing the pain. Ibuprofen is a non-steroidal anti0inflammatory drug (NSAIDs), which work blocking the enzymes that produce prostaglandins, chemicals which promote inflammation, and fever, therefore suppress inflammation in the body. On the other side, paracetamol inhibits the production of specific prostaglandins, allowing it to work on certain areas of the body, being more effective for pain relief due to headaches. Paracetamol has few almost no side effects, while Ibuprofen should not be taken by patients with severe heart failure or liver disease, among others.
