Medicines to Avoid - Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Medicines (NSAIDs)

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medicines, sometimes called NSAIDs, are typically used for pain management. You can buy some NSAIDs over-the-counter, while others require a prescription. NSAIDs include medicines such as aspirin, ibuprofen, indomethacin, naproxen, and a number of others.

In general, it would be preferable to use acetaminophen to treat aches, pains, or fever rather than NSAIDs.
