On Fridays, I play after work and come back really tired with the week's burden. I take 2 Tylenols and 2 Ibuprofens (together) before going to bed, and end up sleeping till 10 or 11 am on Saturday. It has become a routine and it relaxes me a whole deal. I know the mixing is bad, but it is only 2 + 2 OTC caps.
When I had back pain and took Doan's or its equivalent (magnesium salicylate), I liked to "extend" it for a day or two. It feels good.
