Analgesics are medications that are generally used to treat and relieve pain. They can be sold as over-the-counter (OTC) drugs or prescription drugs and can be bought at your typical retail/Compounding Pharmacy in Pinellas Park.
While analgesics are widely used by the public, long-term use can cause some unwanted side effects and complications.
If you feel any of the following side effects or symptoms, contact your Pharmacist or doctor and let them know about your situation:
- Upset stomach
- Ringing in your ears
- Skin itching or rash
- Dry mouth
Different analgesics work in varying ways.
Tylenol changes the way the body senses pain. Opioids, on the other hand, reduces the pain signals sent by the nervous system and minimizes the brain’s reaction to those pain signals.
In the case of NSAIDs, chemicals in the body called prostaglandins are blocked, reducing both pain and swelling.
