Sometimes self-care options don’t bring sufficient relief. In those cases, you may opt for medicines. Those that work best for chronic back pain include NSAIDs, opioids, tramadol and duloxetine. All medications have side effects and can interact with other medicines you take. Always discuss medication options with your doctor.
