Pain relievers are medicines that reduce or relieve headaches, sore muscles, arthritis, or other aches and pains. There are many different pain medicines, and each one has advantages and risks. Some types of pain respond better to certain medicines than others. Each person may also have a slightly different response to a pain reliever.
Pain is an extremely complex, poorly understood medical problem that can have profound effects on your physical and mental wellbeing and on your ability to function at work, at home, and in your day-to-day social interactions.
