With all the concern lately about Tylenol contributing to liver problems (when taken in excess) my doctor has suggested that I alternate Bufferin and Tylenol when I have a fever or muscle aches, and have to take several consecutive doses.

Unfortunately this is one of those times. I have apparently picked up some cold or flu, and have been suffering miserably for a couple of days. My fever has been 100.8 most of the day today, which is just enough to make an adult feel pretty awful. We searched high and low and couldn't find any Bufferin here at home, so my husband was kind enough to go to Walmart tonight to purchase some for me.

I also suffer from acid reflux, so it's best for me to take a buffered or coated aspirin. This is a bottle of 130 tablets, 325 mg each. Bufferin is great for the temporary relief of muscle aches and pains, arthritis, headache, cold, and it's an excellent fever reducer. For most ailments, I prefer regular strength, because I'd just as soon not over medicate, if a lower dose will work. It says to drink a full glass of water with the tablets.

I can't wait till I'm over this respiratory infection. It's the first time I've been sick all winter, and I think I caught it from a lady I sat next to one night at dinner. Let's just say that I'm counting the minutes until I'm feeling better!
