Question:

What are the best painkillers to take?

Answer:
Medication can be unique to both the situation and the person. For instance, pain due to inflammation will best be improved with anti-inflammatory medication. Nerve pain responds to other medications such as Lyrica and even gabapentin. But even within classes of medication we have more than one to choose from becasue what works for one person does not work for another. For every day pain, stick with the over the counter medication that generally works for you. For more severe pain, speak with your doctor about the best medication. Also make sure to communicate with her/him if the medication is not working as expected as another can be recommended.
