Pleurisy

Are over-the-counter medications available for pleurisy?

A Answers (1)

  • There are over-the-counter medications available to help treat the chief symptom of pleurisy. Acetaminophen (Tylenol) and anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) can help relieve your chest pain. Keep in mind that pleurisy treatment involves more than pain management though, so do not consider self-medication with over-the-counter drugs a replacement for professional medical advice and treatment. Tell your doctor about any over-the-counter medication you use to treat your pleurisy.
