Over-the-counter (OTC) pain medicine

Drugs that you can buy at your local drugstore, convenience store, or online for short-term relief of minor aches and pains. Over the counter pain medicine comes in pill or liquid form. Common over the counter pain medicines include Tylenol, Advil, Aleve, and Motrin. Before you take OTC pain medicine, read the directions, and speak with your nurse or doctor if you’re currently on other medicines, have a health condition, or are not sure if OTC pain medicines are safe for you.
