I won't hesitate to use aspirin or ibuprofen if I'm pretty sure the pain is from these old joints...I can't see inflammation being any good there. I am reluctant if the pain is just good old sore muscles, although there are times the soreness is so intense it feels like that achy flu feeling, or it will make me feel depressed, then it helps immensely (these days are usually about two days after a comeback workout from a lay off).

I never take them pre-workout: I am afraid it will mask the onset of pain that should be yielded to before a serious injury occurs.
