Many aches and pains can be managed with the help of over-the-counter pain relievers. At Walmart, you'll find a wide variety of pain relievers to treat a range of conditions, all at Every Day Low Prices.
The most common over-the-counter pain relievers are NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) and acetaminophen. NSAIDs include aspirin, ibuprofen and naproxen. They're often used to treat headaches, muscular and joint pain and menstrual cramps as well as pain associated with colds, flu and toothaches. Acetaminophen is a non-NSAID pain reliever that can be used for most of the same problems. Some people prefer it because it's easier on the stomach and, unlike NSAIDs, is considered safe for children and teens.
Some specialty pain relievers contain NSAIDs or acetaminophen, plus other ingredients meant to treat a particular issue. For example, migraine relief products often contain asprin, caffeine and acetaminophen, which can be especially effective for headaches.
You'll also find topical pain relievers, which are applied to the skin rather than swallowed. A topical pain reliever can be a good choice if you have pain over a small area, such as a muscle or joint. It may bring faster relief, typically with fewer side effects than an oral medication.
With a great selection of pain relievers and other supplies for your medicine cabinet, Walmart has you covered. Save money. Live better.
