This is a research project in which two standard of care practices will be evaluated to examine the difference in outcomes. The goal is to improve patient care and safety. One group will receive prescriptions for acetaminophen, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and magnesium. The other group will receive the recommendation to take acetaminophen, NSAIDs, and magnesium as over-the-counter drugs in the same dosage as the prescription group. The same doses and routes for non-opioid medications will be used in both groups.
