I am here in the southeastern part of the United States and I take nothing like regular aspirin or Ibuprofen or Aleve, which are common painkillers over here, as they can cause damage to the colon. I take what we call Tylenol which are 500mg and contain Acetaminophen, to me this is the best painkiller there is and it is safe to take with colon or stomach issues.
