Buy Painkillers (pills) Online

Buy Painkillers (pills) Online! There are three main types of painkiller: non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS), paracetamol and opioids. Each works in a different way.

Most people only need to take painkillers for a few days or weeks at most, but some people need to take them for a long time.

You can buy some painkillers from pharmacies; this includes some NSAIDs, paracetamol and some weak opioids (codeine or dihydrocodeine).

If you buy painkillers that contain weak opioids and you need to take them for more than three days you must discuss this with your pharmacist or doctor.

Painkillers are medicines that are used to treat pain. There are a large number of painkillers available and they all come in various different brand names. They can be taken:

  • By mouth as liquids, tablets, or capsules.
  • By injection.
  • Via the back passage (rectum) as suppositories.

Some painkillers are also available as creams, ointments or patches.

Even though there are a large number of painkillers available, there are only three main types (each works in a different way). They are:

  • Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS). Examples of NSAIDs include ibuprofendiclofenac and naproxenAspirin is also an NSAID.
  • However, it is mainly prescribed (in low doses) to help to keep the blood from clotting – for example, for people who have had a heart attack in the past.
  • Paracetamol.
  • Weak opioids and strong opioids (sometimes called opiates). Examples of weak opioids include codeine and dihydrocodeine.
  • Although commonly described as ‘weak opioids’, they are extremely effective analgesics often used to treat severe pain; however, they can lead to significant addiction and adverse effects, so should not be underestimated.
  • Examples of strong opioids include morphineoxycodonepethidine and tramadol. Many people who need strong opioids are in hospital.

Different types of painkillers are sometimes combined together into one tablet – for example, paracetamol plus codeine (co-codamol).

In addition to the above, some antidepressants and antiepileptic medicines can be used to treat neuropathic pain. The rest of this leaflet does not discuss these types of medicines. For more information on them see the separate leaflet called Neuropathic Pain.

There are also other alternative methods for pain relief such as, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) machine. See the separate leaflet called TENS Machines.

You can buy different painkillers, including paracetamol and some NSAIDs on Ice420store (eg, ibuprofen, aspirin and naproxen). However, weaker opioids, such as codeine, are only available to buy in combination with paracetamol or ibuprofen.

The dose of codeine in these combination tablets is lower than the doses your doctor can prescribe for you. It is only possible to buy a few days’ supply of the weaker opioid combination tablets.

If you need to take these for more than three days then you will need to discuss this with your doctor or pharmacist.

You need a prescription for weaker opioids that are not in combination with paracetamol – most NSAIDs (for example, indometacin, or diclofenac), as well as stronger opioids (for example, morphinediamorphine and tramadol) and opioid patches.

When used as prescribed by a doctor, prescription medicines can be helpful in treating many illnesses. Stimulants are helpful in managing attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and narcolepsy.

Central nervous system (CNS) depressants treat anxiety, panic, and sleep disorders. Opioids are prescribed to treat pain, coughing, and diarrhea. But when these medicines are misused, they can have serious consequences. Read the DrugFacts on Prescription CNS DepressantsPrescription Opioids, and Prescription Stimulants.
