I use to take tylenol once in a while for pain. The FDA took tylenol off the market anyone know something else (over the counter) that is ok to take for pain? I have stomach problems and cant take many pain medicatons. In case you are wondering, I have been seeing doctors for over 2 years with no help ( They did make the problem worse)

The latest recall, to the best of my knowledge was for childrens and infants Tylenol, not for adult formulations. Besides that there are tons of store brand "Tylenol" (acetaminophen).
2 confirmed herniated lumbar discs. Spinal Arthritis. Spinal Stenosis, diabetic peripheral nueropathy.
