I know I've read this on the forum but my search could not find anything.

What should we use and avoid for basic pain relief (i.e. headaches, back aches, etc)? What tends to cause more problems than help (Aspirin, tylenol, motrin)?

My doc said no ibuprohen (advil) and no aspirin. You can use tylenol.
