    There are several varieties of pain pills, and the one thats right for you depends on the type and severity of your pain. If youre living with chronic pain, then you may be wondering if pain pills are the correct solution. Heres what you need to know about pain pills and how they can help relieve your pain.  
    There are two main types of pain pills: over-the-counter (OTC) and prescription. OTC pain pills, such as ibuprofen and acetaminophen, are available without a prescription. Prescription pain pills, such as opioids, are only available with a doctors prescription.  
    Both OTC and prescription pain pills can be effective in relieving pain. However, its important to understand the risks and side effects of each type of pain pill before you start taking them. OTC pain pills are generally safe when used as directed. 
    However, OTC pain pills can cause side effects, such as stomach pain, bleeding, and ulcers. If you have liver or kidney disease, you should not take OTC pain pills without first talking to your doctor. Prescription pain pills are also generally safe when used as directed.
