If You Absolutely Need Medication

The good news is there are many over-the-counter and prescription pain medications that are not narcotics; therefore, they cannot jeopardize your recovery, Prescription strength Ibuprofen, Tylenol, Motrin, etc. can provide adequate pain relief for some people. If you absolutely require narcotic pain medication, you may be able to be put on drugs that are used in medication-assisted management treatment (e.g. methadone, suboxone, visitor, etc.) to give you the pain relief effects of the narcotics while allowing you to function in everyday life. For this you will need to consult with the treatment program and/or your physician.
