Answer

In the acute phase of any ankle injury, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication such as ibuprofen and naproxen can be used to decrease pain and swelling. In cases of moderate pain, acetaminophen or tramadol may be used for a brief period. Opioid medication should be avoided except in cases with severe pain.
