Analgesic Medications

The goal of pain management is to improve a person’s ability to function normally, both physically and emotionally. The use of analgesic or pain relieving medications is one of the most common forms of treatment. The first line of drugs are non-prescription medications that are available and sold over the counter. Acetaminophen and ibuprofen are the two most common types of non-prescription analgesics used to treat mild to moderate pain. Exceeding the recommended dosage of acetaminophen leads to liver damage. Ibuprofen may cause ulceration of the stomach or the intestines.
