Severe pain is usually treated with narcotic pain relievers, such as Demerol, Morphine and Percodan. ALL of these meds are addictive, so they need to be taken only as prescribed, and never taken with alcohol. If the pain is due to inflammation of any type, such as arthritis, you may be better off taking an NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory), since they reduce the swelling that increases the pain, and helps the pain, as well. Your doctor can best assess your condition and determine which class of pain meds will work best for you.
