Simple and Compound Painkillers

Drugs such as paracetamol can be very useful in pain management.  Many people do not use them reguarly, and if this has not been tried then they may well be worth trying.  

The British Pain Society has produced a useful information sheet which you may find helpful, called Managing your pain effectively using "Over the Counter" (OTC) Medicines (2010)

You can download a copy of the 2010 document, free of charge, by clicking the image below.
