Do NSAIDs all work the same way?

ANSWER

They all reduce pain and inflammation, but you might find that you get more relief from one NSAID over another, and some NSAIDs may have fewer side effects than others. The effect differs from person to person.

Some NSAIDs also may be more convenient, since you only need to take them once or twice a day.
