Answer

Opioid Analgesics

These medications provide control of moderate to severe pain.

Hydrocodone and acetaminophen (Vicodin, Lorcet, Lortab, Norco, Zolvit)

This drug combination is indicated for moderate to severe pain.

Acetaminophen with codeine (Tylenol-3)

This drug combination is indicated for treatment of mild to moderate pain.

Tramadol (Ultram, Ryzolt)

Tramadol inhibits the ascending pain pathways, altering the perception of and response to pain. It also inhibits the reuptake of norepinephrine and serotonin.
