So, what are the best anti-inflammatory medications that do not need a prescripation? Most healthcare providers prefer to give you the drug they use most; however, they will also advise you to start with one of the drugs and change to another until you find the medication that works best for you and your inflammation. For example, you may find that what works best for muscle inflammation is not the same medication that works best for a toothache. Besides, before taking any of these medications, you should also be aware of the risks associated with them. As with all medications, if you are allergic to any of the ingredients, you should NOT take the drug.
