Drugs used for pain relief are medications which decrease or ease headaches, arthritis, sore muscles and basically all kinds of discomfort caused by injury, surgery or disease. Due to the complexity of pain process there is a great deal of pain preparations that work through various physiological mechanisms. However, the majority of them have their benefits and risks. Some of the preparations have a better effect than others, while each patient may have an individual reaction to various pain meds.

Below are the drugs used for relieving different types of pain, both narcotic and non-narcotic pain medications:

  • Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory meds – work on elements in an organism which may cause pain, fever and inflammation;
  • Corticosteroids – induce strong anti-inflammatory impact;
  • Acetaminophen – extends pain threshold, although has a slight effect on inflammation;
  • Opioids (narcotic analgesics) - the strongest pain relief medication which basically changes pain messages delivered to the human brain;
  • Muscle relaxants – decrease pain right from strained groups of muscles, apparently by sedative effect in a central nervous system;
  • Anti-anxiety pills – act on aches in 3 ways: decrease anxiety, relax muscles and help the patients deal with pain discomfort;
  • Anti-depressants – tricyclics are able to decrease the transmission of pain via spinal cord, also called chronic pain relief drugs;
  • Anticonvulsants – some of such meds ease the neuropathy pains, probably by nerve cells stabilizing.

Like all medical preparations pain relief drugs have side effects.

  • Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory meds may cause bleeding and gastrointestinal ulceration. The latest class of Cox-2 inhibitors decreased this problem, however did not fully eliminate it.
  • Corticosteroids cause very few adverse side effects when taken in low dosage for a short while. However, when taken in for a long time, it may result in strong conditions such as atherosclerosis, adrenal insufficiency, bone death and many others (consult for more with your doctor).
  • Acetaminophen usually causes very few side effects, however if it does it may be very serious, i.e. liver damage.
  • Opioids may be the reason of multiple adverse effects that include fatigue, dizziness, respiratory depression, urinary retention and constipation.
