    I think you must / should take an aspirin

    Hello all,

    The question:

    A: I've got a bit of a headache.
    B: I think you must / should take an aspirin.

    I think we can use either one of the two. What do you think? I feel a little bit confused.

    Thanks a lot!

    Re: I think you must / should take an aspirin

    "Must" is a very definite statement so I wouldn't use the uncertain "I think" with it.

    I think you should take an aspirin. (Giving your opinion)
    You must take an aspirin. (Giving an order)
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
