Taking Over-The-Counter Painkillers

Is it right to take over-the-counter painkillers or anti-inflammatories? Charles Jordan, Orthopedic Surgeon at Miami Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Institute, says it depends on the situation. "Everyone is different, everybody is different, every bone is different and every injury is different," he points out and explains anti-inflammatory medicine is a very important factor that has very good benefits in people. According to him, there is a hot topic about combinations of drugs or treatments having a greater effect than using just one of them.
