Three Surprising Side Effects of OTC Pain Pills

Popping pain medicine? Watch out for these scary possibilities:

Ibuprofen
A recent study found that runners who took the drug before a marathon had a higher risk for heart problems, gastrointestinal cramping, and renal complications.

Acetaminophen
Studies have shown that the drug can cause severe liver damage even in doses previously thought to be safe—especially if mixed with as few as three drinks.

Pain-relieving creams
Muscle- and joint-soothing balms that contain a combination of menthol and methyl salicylate have been shown to cause chemical burns or blistering after just one application.
