Tylenol before playing?

While mechanics are crucial to the disc golf throw, it's important to have your body in shape to throw. Talk about conditioning and injuries here.

believe who you want, but the effects of iburofen on your liver are minimal


And I stand by my statements. My sister in-law has a PhD from Northwestern in Chiropractics and Medicine, Her Husband has a Masters in Eastern Medicine and Acupuncture. Both were required to take extensive courses involving drugs and the effects on the body. Both of them have told me what I posted earlier, and I have many links that I can share from the FDA, NIH and even the manufactures website (Merck) that states the dangers of overuse and it's effects on the liver and kidney. They all mention combining the topic drugs with alcohol is extremely dangerous. Go do a search on the side effects of NSAID's which is what Tylenol and IB are considered to be. All information will tell you how it is safe in low doses, not to have prolonged use and never take with alcohol. Here is something else to consider about IB, overuse of Ibuprofen can increase the blood levels of lithium by reducing the excretion of lithium by the kidneys. Increased levels of lithium may lead to lithium toxicity and can cause kidney failure.
Honestly I'm shocked that someone in the medical industry dealing with drugs would say that was okay, but I've seen crazier things.
Good luck, hope no ill effects bestow your organs.

In switzerland, it even says so on the package. Do NOT use in connection with alcohol or for alcohol related head pains. It specialy mentiones hangovers.

Personaly, I think that when you feel pain, it is a sign from your body that somethign needs to be taken care of. Hiding the problem will not solve the rpoblem, unless you plan on taking pills for the rest of your life. Which will definitly be shorter, judging by the abuse I have read about her ein this thread.

I take naproxen sodium (generic Aleve) sometimes because I have a lingering leg problem from a car accident years ago that acts up at times. Rest doesn't really do anything for it, I'm on my feet all day at work and the last three weeks I've felt significantly better on Monday than I have on many previous Mondays because I've been a lot more active on the weekend; not being active seems to actually make it worse when I'm having to be on it a lot again. I very rarely take more than the recommended maximum dosage (2 per day) though, generally unless I'm really wanting to play if I'm hurting bad I take the day off from golf; I also play without taking anything whenever possible.

I don't use it for disc golf related pain really, if my throwing arm/shoulder hurts then I rest it.

I also like naproxen (aleve), but I have been taking it after play, not before.

I've learned to avoid muscle relaxants even the day before, because of problems with alertness, mental accuity, and muscle speed. I normally like to take a muscle relaxant after a day of play, but what if I am playing the next day too?
:p
