Advice & Tips: I always use either Ibuprofen or Acetaminophen on "shot day"...unless I forget. Then, I remember, because I still get flu-like symptoms after all these years. Usually take Ibuprofen...4 200mg caplets every 4 hours for about 12-16 hours. (But sometimes take Acetaminophen...just depends on what I have)
