Medication

As such, a correct diagnosis and assessment of the patient are essential to initiate a pharmacological treatment appropriate to the patient's characteristics and pain.

Currently, to treat pain, there is a wide variety of non-opioid analgesics, such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, weak opioids (e.g. Tramadol, Codeine) and, lastly, potent opioids, such as Oxycodone, Fentanyl and Morphine. In addition, there are a number of drugs called Co-analgesics as anticonvulsants and antidepressants that help us to complete this treatment, according to the pain and the patient.
