    Nothing.

    For the occasional headache, I'll take aspirin or ibuprofen - whichever bottle is easier to reach. Eh, took a few Tums the other day, too.

    Wish I didn't have to take any of them, personally. Alas, I am doomed with high blood pressure, GERD and now RA. I miss doing what I used to do. But, that's life.
