- Not to be confused with Pain Pills.
Temporary pain relievers to help treat injuries.
Aches and pains are a grim reality of life, but like any other problem, there is always a solution. Several drugs may be used to nullify the sensation of pain, which can be beneficial in calming down a patient or to help a diseased person carry on with life. Scientists are still unsure how painkillers work exactly, although it is suspected that they work within the central nervous system. What is known, however, is that excessive use of these drugs can cause irreversible organ damage.
Can be purchased over-the-counter or obtained with a doctor's prescription. Call poison control immediately if overdose is suspected.
