Yes, I have heard the rheumatoid one is not nice at all, I hope to never get that one

Are your tablets strong enough Ads for your pain?

They are if I would take them like I am supposed to.

My mum has really painful arthritis in her hands/fingers and she has tried taking tablets but they really upset her stomach, so sadly she has to just put up with the pain, it hurts me to know that

A common problem. My sister used to take coated medication for hers. I too have coated aspirin that I take every day for my heart. Most people need to eat something before the take pain meds. It really helps.

No, but I have heard of NSAIDS. We have one here that is OTC called Aleve. A lot of folks can't take them on an empty stomach. They are really strong.

All NSAIDS should be taken with food, they are hard on your stomach. Be thankful when you can take NSAIDS, they are the only thing that really helps my pain, but they interact with some of my heart medications so I can't take them anymore.

Non-Steriodal Anti-Inflammatory Drug. This category covers a very wide range of drugs. Basically any drug the reduces inflammation, fever and pain that isn't a steroid. The list ranges from aspirin to some serious Rx drugs.

As PF said, you have to be careful and talk to your Dr. about possible interactions.

I'm fortunate that I don't need regular pain meds. so I just take acetaminophen (Tylenol). I asked my Dr. what I should take and his response was along the lines of 'Take whatever works for you. They're all about the same.'

Tylenol gives me an outrageous headache .. almost a migraine and it will last up to a week after taking just 1 Tylenol.

Aspirin burns my stomach.

Taking with food makes no difference at all with either of these.

This also goes for any type of med - cold or otherwise, prescription or otc that contains either of these.

Advil (or a store brand of the same thing) is the only thing that does not give me an adverse reaction.

Fortunately my consumption of that product might equal all of maybe 6 per year.

DH was told by his Dr that he is not to take anything other than Tylenol so his other meds don't get messed up.

Every person is different but the warnings apply to all.
