I need an anti inflammatory gluten free brand. Or something like Tylenol. I am in pain and do not want to take heavy prescriptions. Anyone know what is gluten-free and if and how bad they are for digestion. Advil, Aleve, motrin or Tylenol. I know the NSAID's are the advil and aleve what do people prefer most. I know there are some of you out there with joint and bone pain.

Some of Target's generics for Tylenol, Advil and Aleve are labeled gluten free.

Jherm21,

I just posted a similar question in another forum topic that might answer some of your questions.

I realized now this might be the better thread for the topic but since I was seeking the research on the BP medicine Losartan I posted it there instead.

In short NSAIDs as well as some other medicines have been associated with GI issues.

Here is a good overview of  the NSAIDs question form the DailyMail.

I hope this is helpful.

posterboy,

I take Aleve or the generic that I get at Wegmans. I haven't had any issues with it and only need to take one for relief. I should note that it is not something I take on a daily basis. I usually only need it a couple times a month.

Is Aleve better than ibuprofen? My back pain doesn't budge with 800 mg Motrin.

It works much better for me but everyone is different.  I have a physical job and sometimes get lower back pain. A hot shower and an Aleve will usually relieve it. It's worth your giving it a try.

Maybe you should have your back checked by a doctor, if the pain is constant and is not improving.  You could be developing another AI issue like Ankylosing Spondylitis.  At least consider trying to find the cause (compressions fractures, slipped disk, whatever).

Oh, I did.... was referred to pt which hasn't helped at all. My muscles are super tight and they supposedly are causing the back pain. No idea what originally caused the problem but it started a couple years ago and has just gotten worse.

I wish you lived near here, I have the greatest massage therapist she does Swedish style, She can loosen up the stressed tight muscles wonderfully, I am prone to getting knots in my shoulders and neck, so I have to have them worked out once a month otherwise they start to limit mobility and hurt.
