Answer

Analgesic agents

Pain control is essential to quality patient care. Analgesics ensure patient comfort and have sedating properties, which are beneficial for patients who have sustained trauma or injuries.

Ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil)

Ibuprofen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory for pain control and treatment of local inflammation.

Acetaminophen (FeverAll, Tylenol)

Acetaminophen is the drug of choice for pain in patients with documented hypersensitivity to aspirin or NSAIDs, with upper GI disease, or who are taking oral anticoagulants.
