If you get sore muscles every now and then, you can take acetaminophen (Tylenol) or a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) like headache medicine, ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin), or naproxen (Aleve) to help facilitate the uneasiness. Simply be wary about utilizing NSAIDs routinely. Long haul use can meddle with your muscle's capacity to fix itself, a medical practitioner says. Check with your PCP or drug specialist about any collaboration these over-the-counter medications may have with different prescriptions you take.

Additionally, you may need to maintain a strategic distance from certain meds in the event that you have ulcers, kidney infection, liver sickness, or different conditions. At times, alleviating sore muscles requires in excess of an ice pack or over-the-counter agony reliever. Muscle torment that goes ahead rapidly and feels extreme is an indication that you've harmed yourself. Call your primary care physician if your torment is serious or goes on for in excess of a couple of days.

If you have muscle pain, you can take certain medications to relieve your pain. Some of the medications you can try are Acetaminophen (Tylenol), Ibuprofen (Advil), naproxen (Aleve), and NSAID like Aspirin. These medications can help ease your pain. Another way to treat muscle pain is to try using an ice pack. Wrap an ice pack in a towel and apply it to the sore area to reduce inflammation and for immediate relief. It is important that you rest the affected body part, give yourself some time to recover from the pain. Avoid high impact exercise and activities. You can also try stress-relieving exercises, such as yoga. Resistance bands for stretching can also be very helpful.
