Codeine acetaminophen


Codeine/acetaminophen can be used for moderate to mild pain treatment.

Acetaminophen and hydrocodone bitratrate (Norco, Zydone, Lortab, Vicodin ES). This

moderate pain. It’s DOC for patients who are aspirin-hypersensitive.

Aspirin (Ecotrin, Aspirtab, Bayer Aspirin, Ascriptin regular strength)

Aspirin can block action of prostaglandin synthetase that in turn will inhibit synthesis of

prostaglandin as well as prevents formation of the platelet-aggregating thromboxane A2; this

will act on hypothalamic heat-regulating centre for reducing fever.

Ibuprofen (dispel, caldolor, motrin, advil, addaprin)

Usually Ibuprofen is DOC for treatment of moderate to mild pain, in case no

contraindications are there. It is among those few NSAIDs that are indicated for reduction of


Naproxen (anaprox, Naprelan, Aleve, Naprosyn)

Naproxen is utilised for relieving moderate to mild pain. This inhibits inflammatory reactions

as well as pain as it decreases COX activity that results in reduced prostaglandin synthesis.
