This is the most commonly used first line medication for pain management. Acetaminophen is also combined with opioid drugs as it works synergistically with the opioids. It is very effective in managing any type of pain including headaches at beginning stages when the condition is of mild severity. When taken on a chronic basis at high doses it may cause liver failure.
