Composition

4.codeine

Effects

Goody's Extra Strength Headache Powder
Toothache is pain in and around the teeth and jawbone, often caused by tooth decay.
2.Is antipyretic (fever reducing)
Aleve Tablets
Goody's Extra Strength Headache Powder
Antipyretic medications help to lower the body temperature. This can help to make patients feel better, however it is not always recommended, as the temperature increase can be a natural defense to fight infections.
3.Targets headaches

The most common form of headache is a tension headache, and can be related to many triggers such as sleep deprivation, stress, eye-strain or hunger.
4.diphenhydramine

Diphenhydramine causes sleepiness or drowsiness. This is better for use at night, particularly if pain prevents you from sleeping.
5.Is anti-inflammatory
Aleve Tablets

Anti- inflammatory drugs are particularly good for things like muscle and joint pain, as they not only block out the pain but also target the cause.
6.Targets rheumatic pain

Goody's Extra Strength Headache Powder
Rheumatic pain is pain in the joints and connective tissues, most commonly caused by arthritis.
