Motrin the Rock Candy of the Military

Military doctors always give Motrin to soldiers to treat the pain. It is called rock candy.


Motrin is the go to drug prescribed in the military and is known as “rock candy”! Anyone who has served has probably received it for everything under the sun. I lost track of the number of times the military doctor would simply say take 1,000 MG of Motrin twice a day and then get back to me in a few weeks. This may sound like a funny joke, but sadly is the reality sometimes.

The Things Our Father’s Saw is other first hand accounts of the “war over there” and Rick Atkinson’s Pulitzer Prize books on WWII like the Guns Last Light (a three part series) are simply amazing. All four books are definite must reads in my opinion.
