What are Analgesics?
During a migraine, blood vessels swell, pushing on nearby tissues and contributing to head pain. Migraine doctors may recommend combination analgesics, or painkillers, containing ingredients like aspirin, caffeine and acetaminophen, to treat migraines with moderate to severe pain. While analgesics reduce mild migraine pain by preventing the production of certain pain-inducing materials in the body, analgesics treat strong migraine pain by sending receptor sites to the brain to halt pain signals. Analgesics treat both strengths of headaches by reducing or eliminating pain.
Producers of the combination analgesics combine multiple ingredients that work in a specific way when mixed and place the mixture in a single tablet. Migraine doctors most commonly combine codeine and caffeine to create a combination analgesic to treat migraine pain. Drugs that prevent nausea can also be added to the combination. Migraine sufferers use aspirin as well, a traditionally common analgesic that has some anti-inflammatory abilities and can be used in a combination analgesic. Paracetamol also acts as an analgesic but lacks anti-inflammatory characteristics. Many combination analgesics do not require prescriptions. For more severe cases, combination analgesics can be more effective than NSAIDs.
