  • I'd have to say ibuprofin, like advil for all over pain and there's a lot i hear about doctors advising people with med. conditions not to take tylenol because it eats away the lining of your stomach and liver. Advil has coating so this kind of makes since.

  • Advil. It is the only thing that works. Tylenol doesn't even touch my headaches.

  • My hubby only takes ibuprofen. He says it's the only thing that'll work for him. I have to take a prescription called Midrin for my headaches.

  • IB becuase it's an anti-inflamatory and i have tendonitis in my wrists..tylenol doesnt do shit for me and it sucks its the only think i can take while pregnant..luckily i wont have to in a couple more weeks...but be careful w IBprofen because if you take it on an empty stomache, it too can eat away at your stomache..

  • IB it just seems to work better for me. Tylenol is better for broken bones and not so much for headaches or muscles aches!
