(( Students at Buell Elementary school barely had time to get settled into their desks Tuesday morning when gunfire erupted inside a classroom. Police say a six year old first grader brought a gun to school and allegedly shot his classmate, killing her..she too was only six years old. He used a stolen 32-caliber handgun. ARTHUR BUSCH, GENESEE CO. PROSECUTOR:
The county prosecutor says there may have been a schoolyard scuffle between the two the day before. After the shooting, teachers and administrators immediately began sending students out to waiting buses. Some parents were already there to greet their children. For parents and students, this whole event defies belief. THOMAS FRAZIER, PARENT, it's unreal that children have to go through something like this. Its bad enough that they have got schools to deal with and peer pressure.to go to school and gave to worry about being shot. Police immediately shut down the area around the school. Grief counselors and social workers were also dispatched to the school. Classes were later dismissed.

Today on Health check, we'll look at the confusing world of over the counter pain relief. With more than a 150 types of medications available, it can be difficult to decide what to take for your aches and pains. But as Dr. Dave Hnida tells us, you can really boil it down to three choices.

[RUNS=2:15]
[OUT Q=CBS NEWS]

(( WHATS THE RIGHT CHOICE WHEN YOURE HIT WITH A DIZZYING ARRAY OF PRODUCTS THAT ACHE FOR YOUR BUSINESS ON THE MEDICINE AISLE?
WELL ITS NOT AS COMPLICATED AS YOU THINK. THERE ARE REALLY ONLY THREE BASIC TYPES OF PAIN RELIEVERS- ASPIRIN- ACETOMINOPHEN- OR TYLENOL- AND THE NSAIDS- A HUGE GROUP THAT INCLUDES IBUPROFEN, ADVIL, NUPRIN, AND ALEVE.

SO WHICH OF THESE PRODUCTS DO DOCTORS TAKE WHEN THEY GET AN ACHE OR PAIN?
FOR A HEADACHE: 6 OUT OF TEN DOCTORS PREFER ACETOMINOPHEN- OR TYLENOL.
HE MAJOR REASON BESIDES GOOD PAIN RELIEF- ACETOMINPHEN IS VERY GENTLE ON THE STOMACH.

3 OUT OF TEN DOCTORS PREFER IBUPROFEN OR A SIMILAR PRODUCT.

IF YOU RECALL IBUPROFEN IS IN THAT GROUP OF MEDICATIONS CALLED NSAIDS- AND NSAIDS IN GENERAL WORK MORE QUICKLY THAN ACETOMINPHEN - AN IMPORTANT POINT WHEN YOUVE GOT A BAD HEADACHE. BUT IN SOME PEOPLE NSAIDS HAVE A TENDENCY TO CAUSE AN UPSET STOMACH.

- TRACK-
AND ONE OF 10 DOCTORS PREFER PLAIN OLD ASPIRIN.
SO WHAT DO DOCTORS PREFER FOR MUSCLE ACHES AND PAINS?
- TRACK-

9 OUT OF TEN DOCTORS SAY- IT DOESNT MATTER.
- DAVE TRACK-

YOU ALWAYS HEAR NSAIDS LIKE IBUPROFEN OR ALEVE ARE THE BEST CHOICE BECAUSE THEY RELIEVE MUSCLE AND JOINT INFLAMMATION- AND THEY DO- BUT ONLY AT DOSES HIGHER THAN WHATS RECOMENDED ON AN OVER COUNTER PRODUCT.
ACETOMINOPHEN, NSAIDS OR ASPIRIN- DOCTORS SAY USE WHAT WORKS BEST FOR YOU... AND GENERIC IS JUST AS GOOD AS NAME BRAND FOR ALL THESE PRODUCTS.
- TRACK- THEN FOR THE SEARING HEAT OF A FEVER- 5 OUT OUT OF TEN DOCTORS SAY THEY TAKEACETAMINOPHEN- BUT 5 OUT OF TEN PREFER IBUPROFEN OR SOME OTHER NSAID-
ONCE AGAIN- ACETOMINOPHEN- GENTLE ON THE STOMACH- IBUPROFEN AND NSIADS- WORK FASTER AND LAST LONGER.
-- AND FOR THE BEST RELIEF OF MENSTRUAL CRAMPS- 9 OUT OF 10 SAY THEY PREFER IBUPROFEN OR ANOTHER NSAID... -BIG REASON HERE- NSAIDS BLOCK THE CHEMICAL THAT CAUSES MENSTRUAL CRAMPS ACETAMINOPHEN DOES NOT. BOTTOM LINE: YOUVE GOT A LOT OF CHOICES TO JUGGLE WHEN IT COMES TO PAIN RELIEF- BUT DONT LET THE PACKAGES AND PROMISES GIVE YOU A HEADACHE- A LOT OF IT BOILS OWN TO WHAT YOU LIKE BEST. I'M DR.
