Drugs, Medications, to Relieve Back Pain : Medication alone is not the ultimate solution to your back pain, however during emergency or during severe pain these medicines may help you curb the suffering.
Acetaminophen : Your doctor may call this an analgesic, but most of us refer to acetaminophen me-dications as painkillers. They don’t help reduce inflammation, though.
NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) : These will help reduce swelling (or inflammation) while relieving your pain; that’s how NSAIDs differ from acetaminophen. If an over-the-counter NSAID is an option for you, you have plenty to choose from. You can use ibuprofen, aspirin; however seek medical advice before you take any medicine.
Muscle Relaxants : If you have chronic back pain caused by muscle spasms, you may need a muscle relaxant, which will help stop the spasms
Anti-depressants : As surprising as it may seem, anti-depressants can be effective drugs for treating pain because they block pain messages on their way to the brain. They can also help increase your body’s production of endorphins, a natural pain killer.
Opioids : In the most extreme cases, and only under careful supervision, you doctor may also prescribe an opioid, such as morphine or codeine.
Medication Warning : As with all medications, you must follow your doctor’s advice precisely. Never mix over-the-counter and prescribed drugs without consulting your doctor.
