None, as it is dangerous to mix any form of medication, be it prescriptive or non-prescritive , with alcohol. If you must take a pain reliever, however, the safest choice would be a low dose (one pill) of Aleve, as it has less of a detrimental effect on the liver and kidneys than Tylenol and the other NSAIDs.

Tylenol or acetaminophen is the safest pain releiver for pregnant women and children. Although NSAIDS like ibuprofen are relatively safe Tylenol is considered the safest.

How does pain reliever know where the pain is in the body?

I like this question because it forces the pain reliever makers to state a reality. Any pain reliever can relieve most pain. Only the strength of the pain reliever should matter to the patient. Pain reliever companies make all these different kinds of relievers for different kinds of pain, when in fact, the pain receptors in the human body react to all of them. To explain: when you take a pain reliever, it deadens the pain to almost all your pain receptors all over your body- not to just your head or your finger or your toe. So, to take a pain reliever for a back ache is just as good to take for a head ache because this reliever will work on all pain receptors in your body. There may be some exceptions but as a rule for over the counter pain relievers this is true. Pain relievers do not know where the pain is, they just deaden the pain throughout the body to include what place is hurting.
