Answer

Analgesics/antipyretics

Analgesics and antipyretics are often helpful in relieving the associated lethargy, malaise, and fever associated with illness.

Ibuprofen (Ibuprin, Advil, Motrin)

Ibuprofen is usually the drug of choice for the treatment of mild to moderate pain, if no contraindications exist.

Acetaminophen (Tylenol, Panadol, Aspirin-Free Anacin)

Acetaminophen is the drug of choice for the treatment of pain in patients who have documented hypersensitivity to aspirin or NSAIDs, who have upper gastrointestinal disease, or who are taking oral anticoagulants.
