Since the effect of any drug is individual, it is necessary to choose the most suitable option of trial. Just do not take just potent analgesics. The more powerful the drug, the more harmful effects. First test the therapeutic effect of safer drugs.


According to the degree of popularity is a true national asset. Although doctors jokingly note that if you helps "Citramon" then your head you are all right... Yes, the one it absolutely does not help, but the other pain of medium intensity do pass.

Acetylsalicylic acid (aspirin) and paracetamol, included in its composition have analgesic effect. And caffeine, dilating blood vessels, relieves their spasms. But due to the acetylsalicylic acid "Citramon" you can't treat a headache in acute diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, liver, gout.


Its active substance is drotaverine effectively relieves spasms of smooth muscles. And although the "no-silos" is prescribed primarily cystitis, cholecystitis, kidney stones, pancreas and bladder, headaches, it can also deliver.

"No-Spa" is also fairly harmless. It is contraindicated only in severe cardiac, renal and liver failure.


It's kind of a combination of "Advil" and "no-Spa", as in "Pentalgin" and paracetamol, and caffeine and drotaverine. But their effect is enhanced by additional pain management: naproxen and feniramina.

Contra "up Pentalgin" – as "Citramon" plus gastrointestinal bleeding, severe stage of hypertension, myocardial infarction, bronchial asthma in combination with nasal polyps apparatus.

"Analgin" and "Baralgin"

There was a time when "Aspirin" was treated by the whole world because it is effective and cheap. But then this drug revealed a lot of serious side effects. He attacks the kidneys, causing allergies until angioedema, and the most dangerous affects the structure of blood and has a harmful effect on the blood.

"Baralgin" is akin to "Analgin" – they are one and the same active substance Metamizole. Only "Baralgin" more powerful, because Metamizole is supplemented fenpiverinum and pitofenone, thereby enhances the action of all three ingredients. But this analgesic may develop dependence.

"Baralgin" you can't take away the headache in diseases of the blood, severe lesions of kidney and liver damage, hypotension, glaucoma, prostate adenoma. In dozens of foreign countries and "Analgin" and "Baralgin" has been denied.


Today it is perhaps the most popular drug. The active ingredient Ketorolac is a very potent narcotic analgesics, but the efficacy of pain relief it is compared with morphine. Another important advantage – it's not addictive.

Unfortunately, "Ketorol" often take when a headache or teeth. But it has many contraindications and side effects. When receiving more than 5 days can receive the medicinal complications. Very carefully should refer to "Ketorol" the elderly, especially over 65 years.


It is also a potent non-narcotic. However, because of the high cost it is not known so widely. The active substance flupirtine relieves pain, relieves muscle spasms and protects the nervous system.

Anesthesia "Katadolon" even in single dose occurs quickly and lasts for a long time: young people – about 7 hours in the elderly is twice as long.

This drug is also not addictive. However, its intake is contraindicated in the stagnation of bile, severe liver disease, myasthenia gravis, alcoholism, tinnitus. There is an age limit: "Katadolon" it is impossible to remove headaches in children and adolescents under 18 years of age. And the elderly over 65 years it should be used with caution.

And last warning, which applies to all analgesic tablets and capsules: taking them is contraindicated during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
