iVillage.com: 9 Medicine Cabinet Must-Haves

Pain Medication

Uses: General body aches, sore throat, headache and fever

Acetaminophen (Tylenol), ibuprofen (Motrin) and naproxen sodium (Aleve) are essential for easing fever, aches and a sore throat. All three work fine for treating symptoms, but stick with acetaminophen if you have a history of stomach problems or ulcers (it’s less harsh on your stomach). If you have kids, stock up on children’s pain medications, too. “But don’t give kids aspirin [for fever] which has a risk of Reye’s syndrome,” says Hopkins. If a fever is making you miserable (usually around 102 degrees or higher for adults), treat it. Follow the package directions for how often you can take these medications.
