Strongest to Weakest Pain Medication?

Answer

The strongest pain medications are generally those that are available by prescription only, such as Oxycodone, Dilaudid, Fentanyl, and many of the morphine derivatives. The very weakest pain medication is aspirin, which can readily be purchased over the counter. Slightly above aspirin is acetaminophen, which is often sold as either Tylenol or generic Tylenol. Acetaminophen is sold over the counter in most strengths, but there are a few strengths that are sold as prescriptions only. The next step in strength for pain medications is the combination of aspirin and acetaminophen in an over the counter medicine such as Vanquish.
