Ok so I know that muscle growth occurs when small tears are created in the muscle as you work out, and the muscle is expanded in size as these tears are repaired. That is a very simplified explanation of course, but that is kind of the bare minimum summary.
So my question is if painkillers, meaning basic anit-inflammatorys and other otc's like tylenol or advil can interfere with this process.
This question probable stems from me having no clue exactly how such painkillers work, and effect your body, but this is merely a point of interest that I have been wondering about. I very rarely use any pain killers or otc meds, but I was thinking about this and couldnt help but ask.
