Pain Medication

Medication can help with pain caused by disc degeneration. Pain medications include:

  • Anti-inflammatory medications (like ibuprofen)
  • Opioid medications (like morphine)
  • Anticonvulsant medications (like Neurontin)
  • Antidepressant medications (like Cymbalta)

These medicines help many people, but they are not always completely effective. Your doctor works closely with your primary doctor to determine what pain medications could relieve your pain.
