Back Pain Relief Medicine


Over-the-counter back pain relief medicine is widely available. However, these medicines are not very effective in providing back pain relief in the long term. That is why a doctor may prescribe a patient with combined over-the-counter and prescribed medication. This way, the patient may get relief more quickly and the effects of the medicine may last longer than only administering over-the-counter medicines. A patient should check with their doctor before taking any kind of medicine for back pain relief.


There are multiple over-the-counter (non-prescription) and prescription medications that can be helpful in relieving pain and addressing related symptoms.


When oral over-the-counter medicines are taken, they will decrease the stiffness of the muscles in the back and may reduce the swelling if there is any, and reduce any inflammation causing the back pain. Some of these medicines are Aspirin, Ibuprofen and Naproxen, these are all popular pain relieving drugs that are taken orally.

Counter irritants are also used to reduce pain in your back. These are generally applied in cream  or spray form. These kinds of medications generally stimulate the nerve endings, generating a warm feeling or a cold feeling on the skin. This way the feeling of pain is numbed and the patient is relieved from the pain temporarily.

There are also analgesics that stimulate blood flow and cure any inflammation reducing the pain in the back.


An Anticonvulsant is medication that reduces pain in the nerves and are sometimes prescribed to patients to reduce the back pain. They may be prescribed together with analgesics.


It is notable that sometimes antidepressants are also prescribed to patients suffering from back pain. Other than acting as pain relief, they reduce depression and help a patient to sleep.
