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.

The next step in strength for pain medications is the combination of aspirin and acetaminophen in an over the counter medicine such as Vanquish.
