Re: pain medication that don't effect the liver

it kind of depends upon just what pain it is that you are trying to manage that woud dictate the best possible type of non tylenol based meds for it. the biggest thing in some pain meds that really affects the liver in the biggest ways is tylenol based meds of any type. there are actually quite a few different non tylenol based meds that are used to treat things like chronic on going pain that work really well without impacting the liver or the kidneys much. i myself have both a kidney and a liver diesease so i really have to watch what i take. but i suffer from many diffrent types of chroinic pain that just has to be controlled with some level of narcotic therepy.

i use oxycontin and oxy IR(immediate release oxycodone) the IR is just like percocet but without any tylenol in it,and oxycontin doesn;t contain anytrhing but time released oxycodone either. there are other meds too if we are talking narcotics here. like i said,alot of what will work or wont really work for your particular type of pain really comes down to what the generator of your pain is. there are also topicals that can work too which i also use. when it comes to OTC pain relievers,there are some drawbacks there because they will either hit the liver hard or in an inadvertant way like with the NSAIDS type of pain relievers. tho things like advil are actually metabolized within the kidneys,there are certain effects these meds can have on the clotting ability that would be a liver issue too. if you could let me know just what pain you are trying to treat right now,it would really help.
