True. I didn't even feel the first shot until the next day when I had a bit of a sore arm.I thought the same but was told by the nurse who gave me the 2nd shot yesterday that I could take ibuprofen if needed for a sore arm. But, I guess you don't get sore right away.
HUH?! These are not even comparable situations. If you are taking NSAIDs per doctors orders for some other condition, that in no way equates to "prophylactic" use based on rumor or suspicion. I had a mild reaction to the second shot, just a feeling of tiredness. No nausea, fever, headache, anything like that. Just felt kind of "blah". I took nothing for it. This impresses me more with what a bunch of spoiled babies we have become! God help us if we have to endure any discomfort at all! Who shall we blame?!Perfect Example:
Q-29. Should I plan to take Tylenol or Motrin before my vaccine dose?
A. If you regularly take acetaminophen (e.g., Tylenol), ibuprofen (e.g., Motrin, Advil) or aspirin for other medical conditions, please continue to do so as directed by your physician or as needed. Otherwise, do not pre-medicate before getting the vaccine. In general, taking these over-the-counter medications that reduce fever or inflammation before receiving a vaccination may reduce its ability to work and blunt your immune response to the vaccine. The time to take these medications is after the vaccination when you have symptoms that make you uncomfortable. If you do have symptoms, don’t hesitate to take an over-the-counter medication to help you feel better. However, if you usually take these medications for other medical reasons, continue to take them per your normal routine.
