Pain Management medication approved

The severity of pain varies from patient to patient, therefore there are many different pain relievers used for pain management. For some patients, nothing more than a acetaminophen or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs) is needed. In more severe cases where pain is moderate or severe, a narcotic pain reliever will be used. Some of the most commonly prescribed pain medications used to control cancer pain include Ibuprofen, hydrocodone, Oxycontin, Morphine, Codeine, Dilaudid, and others. The drug chosen by the doctor will be based on the amount of pain that you are feeling, as well as the type of cancer that has been diagnosed. Not all types of cancer respond the same way to all medications. The drug and dosing can be changed or adjusted if the pain increases or decrease.
