From personal experience, my gall bladder attacks came about from having high triglycerides. I brought those down naturally with Bragg's Organic Apple Cider vinegar and Krill Oil pills. I also did a cleansing of my system (liver, pancreas and gall bladder work closely together with the intestines) and it seemed to have worked. However, if you have stones in your gallbladder, you need to be really strict about following a low trans fatty acid diet and stay away from refined vegetable oils. It would help even more if you try to eat more organic and stay away from meat that is full of antibiotics, steroids and feed GMO corn. Also, see your doctor for lab work and at least a sonogram to check for the severity of your situation.
According to a medical site Tylenol (acetaminophen) is one of the good over-the-counter medications. However, this is only advisable for the mild discomfort. It is advisable to consult a doctor for appropriate medication or treatment.
If you won't go to the doctor, then use an anti-inflamatory and stop eating so your gall bladder can stop working. Bottled not tap water, in small amounts and saltines to nibble on. This is not something that will go away. Fatty foods sets it off along with pork products.
For over the counter meds i'd say ibuprofen soft gels. I take 600 - 800 milligrams. Gas - X for the pressure/discomfort. And ive found that the apple juice/apple cider vinegar cocktail helps greatly. its a cup of juice and 3 tablespoons of vinegar. it helps soften the stone and makes it pass easier. If the pain doesn't ease up after 30-40 min get to the ER it may be pancreatitis or some other serious problem.
