Ingredients in pain relief medication
So, let’s start with what kind of ingredients we can find in pain relief medication!
1) Ibuprofen: Non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory analgesic. It works strongly.
2) Loxoprofen: Propionic, anti-inflammatory analgesic. It changes into an easy-to-use form after entering the body. Furthermore, the burden on the stomach is small and the analgesic effect is strong. It is therefore one of the most used ingredients in medicines in Japan currently.
3) Isopropyl antipyrine: Can be found in cold medication on the market.
4) Aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid): Non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory analgesic. Also as an anti-platelet agent.
5) Acetaminophen: Eases the burden on the gastrointestinal tract. Some medicine can be taken even on an empty stomach. Active ingredient of anti-pyretic analgesics for children.
6) Alminoprofen: Non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory analgesic. Less burden on the stomach and quick acting.
7) Etenzamide: This works like aspirin, but the side effect is relatively light
Ingredients that induce drowsiness
1) Bromwarelyl urea: For insomnia, and relaxes tension and unease.
2) Apronal: One of the sedative components. Found in anti-pyretic analgesics & motion sickness medication.
