Which analgesic, or over-the-counter pain medicine, to take?

"You probably have at least three kinds of painkillers in your bathroom medicine cabinet, but they're not all designed to treat the same types of discomfort," Erin Brodwin writes for Business Insider. "While some relievers are great at bringing down fevers, others contain the ingredients needed to reduce the kind of painful swelling linked with muscle soreness or arthritis. Depending on your medical history, and even what you've eaten or drank recently, there may be certain over-the-counter medications you should avoid altogether." BI offers this chart, which is limited to the treatment of pain; many of the medications listed can treat many other symptoms.
