Choose a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), such as ibuprofen, which decreases the formation of prostaglandins that cause pain. It should be taken regularly (with milk or food to minimize irritation to the stomach) rather than needed to maintain a low level of these prostaglandins. Nevertheless, since these medications may not be suitable for you, it is advisable to always consult your pharmacist before choosing a product.
