Medicine That Reduces Pain And Fever

When pain gets in the way of your daily activities, you can often take steps to address it with over-the-counter products. Your medical provider can recommend the best pain relief solution for your needs, and then you can shop the huge selection of pain relief products available at CVS to find whatever he or she recommends. Shop the entire product selection or explore the available pain relief solutions by category. You can complete your purchase online and have pain relief products shipped to your door.

Acetaminophen And NSAIDS

A number of oral medications for pain relief may be purchased without a doctor's prescription. There are two main categories of oral pain relievers to choose from: acetaminophen and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Acetaminophen is believed to provide relief by interrupting the brain's ability to receive pain signals. Doctors may recommend acetaminophen to reduce fevers, alleviate headaches and address common aches and pains and discomfort associated with chronic conditions. NSAIDs like aspirin, ibuprofen and naproxen may reduce the amount of prostaglandins that the body produces in order to lessen pain. As a result, these medications are usually able to address both pain and swelling. This makes them commonly used for muscle aches, stiffness, menstrual cramps and injuries and conditions that cause inflammation.

Topical Pain Relievers

When pain is due to arthritis, an injury or a skin care problem, physicians may recommend addressing the discomfort with external pain relief products. Some of these over-the-counter medications contain anesthetics that numb the nerves in the affected area to help reduce pain symptoms. Others produce cooling, tingling or warming sensations that temporarily ease feelings of pain.

Heat And Cold Therapy For Pain

Hot and cold therapy is often recommended for at-home pain relief. Cold packs and compresses reduce blood flow to the affected area, reducing swelling and easing discomfort. Warm compresses, packs and heating pads increase blood flow. This makes hot therapy ideal for addressing stiffness, tightness and muscle spasms.

TENS Unit For Pain

Pain relief devices provide a high-tech way to address discomfort. One commonly used device is the transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation or TENS unit. A TENS unit produces electrical impulses that have been shown to temporarily alleviate certain types of pain by stimulating the nerves.

Targeted Pain Relief

Targeted pain relief products can make it easy to address a specific type of pain. In the product selection at CVS, you'll find pain relievers for arthritis, migraines, menstrual pain, urinary tract infections, oral pain and lower body pain.
