I use 3 OTC products and rotate them.
AlkaSeltzer original formula
Generic Tylenol (acetaminophen).
I don't take every day. Some days when I know I will be doing ALOT physically I take the generic Tylenol in advance.
I use Aleve more for my arthritis.
I use the AlkaSeltzer for the burning sensations in my feet.
Sometimes I just feel "hot" all over, and I take it then too.
For really severe OTC pain... AlkaSeltzer works for me well.
When I strained that adductor tendon on vacation, it was the only thing that worked for me. Tylenol and Aleve were useless.
When I feel really rotten and need to lie down, it is AlkaSeltzer time!
