Over-the-counter Meds

3 posts in this topic

Hi all,

This is kind of a continuation of the last post, about recovering from an accident. I wondered what kinds of over-the-counter things people find helpful or hurtful. I recently had a bad experience with immodium.

do any of you have advice about common over-the-counter things: pain killers, gas stoppers, etc.

also, what kind of supplements do you take -- especially those of you with joint or muscle pain?

thanks in advance for any advice.

I don't like taking supplements, but I am trying cod liver oil softgels. It is supposed to ease damage caused by osteoarthritis, which plagues my joints. I also use a vitamin/mineral supplement made by Nature Made. I put flax seed in my breakfast, and eat lots of garlic throughout the day. I have just started with the cod liver oil, so I don't know if it actually works on joints.

I am also interested in this. I use tums every once in a while and I have often wondered if they are gluten-free. Anyone know?

For bloating and gas, activated charcoal works REALLY well. It absorbs gas and it's totally non toxic and moves right through your system. I tend to take 4-8 capsules when it happens. Be careful when taking them with vitamins or meds though, I've heard it can absorb those as well.
