Sometimes on Dex i get a slight headache. Very annoying.
I read somewhere long ago that stimulants and painkillers are a bad combo.
Which painkillers can I take? Ibuprofen-ones or others?
I'm talking about over the counter painkillers, not strong ones...
Thanks in advance for any reply

Stimulants and pain killers aren't necessarily a bad combo; it's mainly with abuse of both stimulants and pain killers that causes problems. If you're taking your dextro-amphetamine in prescribed doses and have no pre-existing cardiovascular conditions then you shouldn't have any problems taking over the counter OR narcotic pain medications in conservative, therapeudic doses. Just make sure you drink a lot of fluids (stay hydrated) and eat something before hand if you are taking an NSAID (ibuprofin, naproxen, aspirin, etc.) to reduce stomach upset/problems and to make sure your kidneys stay in good shape, as NSAIDs are metabolized by the kidneys.

Weak ones are not bad, and Tylenol 3 actually feels pleasant.
