I would have to know if you mean prescription or non to answer this properly but I will try anyway. The stongest prescription pain reliever is a patch you must where on you shoulder. This slowly releases opiate related compounds in to the bloodstream. Other related prescription pills are percodon percoset oxycodone vikodon and codeine. These are all derived from opium and can be extremely addicting to the point of causing sickness when withdrawal sets in. There is also morphine which is another opiate. All these are extremely risky to take but are very effective in relieving pain too. Over the counter types are Ibuprophen , acetominophen, and naproxin sodium or aleve as it is commonly called . These all are good for minor pain. Buti f you need something stronger you must see a doctor and take whatever he gives you at the proper dosage as narcotics can stop your heart if overdosed.

If you want to avoid pills, especially considering the recent warnings against the common NSAID painkillers (Ibuprofen, Naproxen, etc), the most effective treatment is to put one of those disposable heating pads on the most painful area and do gentle stretching exercises: Concentrate on gently rolling your shoulder blades back and down, and squeezing them together. A good stretch is to put your hands on the outside of both sides of a door frame at shoulder level, put one foot forward and, keeping your head and chest upright, lean forward while concentrating on keeping your shoulders down and back.

Depending on the pain, ice and believe it or not, for small surface pain such as bug bite honey.  The strongest pain killers are of the opiate famillies.  But these should only be used with great precausion and supervision from your family doctor.  For muscle pain, alternating hot and cold compresses, even for headaches, cold compress to top of head.

Alternating cold compresses and warm ones at the base of the neck can help for headaches too.

Opiates actually can make post operative pain worse.

Be very careful when dealing with opiates!!!!!

Nothing worse than having surgery and not having your pain work because because you took some percocets, darvocets, morphine, Oxycodones, methodone in the past. Of course high doses are the real villians.

Be warned!

Prescription- vicodin.  O.t.c. Is naprosyn.  Both have a lot of side effects- of course!

Depends on the kind of pain. Different pain takes different pain killers. And different people have different thresholds for pain. I take Vicodin or Percocet for my migraines but they have several drawbacks. Besides the obvious addiction/abuse potential, they can cause rebound headaches. So they get rid of your pain (in my case a migraine) but then they cause another headache. But when I have a migraine that is a 8 (on a level of 0-10) I go in and get a shot of Demerol. I have to say that works the fastest on my pain.

If it is something philosophical, death is the best pain killer.
pharmaceutically, though, there are 2 kinds of analgesics (pain relievers/killers): Narcotic & non-narcotic. Narcotic pain killers are mostly used for moderate to severe pain. Non-narcotics are for mild to moderate pain.
the best pain killer depends on the kind of pain you have.  Before giving pain relievers, patients are usually asked to rate their pain. That way, they are given the appropriate pain relievers and prevent tolerance to some analgesics.

Good ole asprin works well for me for back and joint pain. Marijuana (probably the safest drug on the planet) seems to work best for patients with tumors or cancer pain. Hydrocodone (Vicoden, Lortab, Vicoprofen) is the most reliable as long as you don't gain a high tolerance from chronic daily use. Percocet (Oxycodone) works pretty well for some people. Darvocett works about as good as a Tylenol and shouldn't even require a prescription but it does, it's crap. Throw in a shot of Jack or a beer to give it a kick!

Advil is great for everyday aches and pains. You do have to be careful as it can cause liver problems and stomach problems.

It's depend on your condition that you've body pain or eyes pain or back pain or something like that. If you fell serious go to your doctor and discuss. On the other hand Hydrocodone 10mg is best for cure of pain but first prefer your doctor.

Oxy and beer, you do not need pain control, you are trying to get high. Your answer is dangerous, in fact it is so dangerous that I am reporting it! Oxy is basically an opiate, very close to medically approved heroin. I recommend this to no one.

Oxycodone and beer has synergestic effect as pain killer. Oxycodone, a semi-synthetic opiate, and beer, a depressant, works by greatly increasing pain relief. However, they have greater adverse reaction (i.e. Increased risk of respiratory depression). It is therefore a dangerous combination, but, not an invalid answer. Because, for some people, this is more effective especially if taken with precaution.
