    I know this massive, pervasive headache I have isn't dehydration - I've been through gallons of water. It's most likely due to the adjustment of the CD plan. Whatever the cause, it's beginning to affect my work.

    Is it okay to take a Tylenol or Aleve on this diet?

    It may be carb withdrawal if you are new on the diet, I would take cheap chalky paracetamol as they won't upset your tummy like something like Brufen.

    As with all medical concerns though your should check with your GP/MD if you are worried.

    Sorry have no idea but hopefully someone will be along soon who can. I usually just stick to paracetamol, although i'm living on Ibuprofen at the minute due to chronic backache :(

    Is paracetamol a European thing? I'm in the states (yeah, I know, bleedin' yank...) and haven't heard of it. Thanks for the suggestion - i will definitely look for it now!

    Wow, really? Here, Aspirin (acetominophen?) is considered to be more severe on your stomach than either ibuprofin or naproxen sodium. If that's what you guys use and it works, I'll go pick some up. :)

    Apparently in the states paracetamol is known as acetaminophen.

    Tylenol, Anacin 3, Datril, Panadol are all common US brands which contain paracetamol

    Aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid) is quite different to paracetamol and has some quite serious contraindications for use due to its blood thinning properties and its adverse effects on things like asthma.
