I use store brand -- Walmart -- generic motrin/advil/ibuprofen for decades, I've found it gives me pain relief same as the name brand & so much cheaper.

My husband swears by WalMart generic for Tylenol. I myself use the brand Tylenol. I have not had any luck with the generic like my husband did.

I usually use Excedrin and/or Tylenol. Sometimes the headache is a little different and then Aleve works pretty well. Other times turmeric actually works just as good. It really depends on the headache.

I use Great Value from Walmart.  Works just as well as Advil or Motrin and saves money.

a cold pack works wonders.
so does the acupressure point between your thumb and first finger.
someone can pinch you or you can pinch yourself.
press- release  - press - release - press - release
your headache or head pressure will fade within fifteen minutes.

The CDC needs to think think think again. Everything dose a job on our kidneys, and otc meds ingredients can be stored in your liver, and if something that is too strong for your body at that time which can travel to your pancreas, you can get appendicitis and gallbladder problems. So, I don't know pain is real  :bad:

Excedren is great for pain. Whenever I feel a headache coming, it knocks it out quickly.

I usually like to use Excedrin, but it depends on the type of pain you are having.
