Which is the best pain-killer tablet for me?

Depending on the type and level of pain you are experiencing, the best pain-relief tablet may vary. Over-the-counter medication is usually suitable for mild pain such as headaches and inflammation, while moderate to stronger tablets that contain codeine may be necessary when mild treatment is ineffective.

For severe pain, stronger pain treatment such as morphine and related opioid tablets may be appropriate. Your doctor or pharmacist will advise you on the best pain management solution for your condition.

Is codeine very effective in treating moderate to severe pain?

Yes. Codeine can be highly effective in controlling moderate to intense pain, especially after operations or instances where milder tablets, such as paracetamol, are insufficient alone. Visit our ‘Home’ page for more information on codeine and its uses.

Are brand name drugs better than generics?

Generic medication that is FDA-approved is equivalent to the brand-name options in terms of the active ingredients, dosage, uses and other effects. This means both medications meet the same quality, safety and effectiveness requirements.

The main difference is that generics are available at a fraction of the cost. Brand-name medications cost more because companies need to recover the costs incurred during development including research, marketing and other start-up costs.

How do I manage the common side effects?

Sometimes, part of the pain management process is symptom management. Having more fluids and fibre in your diet can relieve constipation. Some doctors may also recommend a laxative for quicker relief. When using stronger pain tablets, which can lead to drowsiness, it is best to rest and not operate any heavy machinery. Adjusting the dosage to the lowest recommended dosage can also help.

Always practice safe-use of medication, monitor your condition and seek medical assistance when necessary. Following these guidelines should allow you to heal and manage your pain effectively.
