Block pain in the human body canonly narcotic and non-narcotic analgesics of synthetic, semi-synthetic and natural origin. Until the discovery of analgesics, not one century has passed. Instead, as a painkiller, a person took a high dose of alcohol or used opium, hemp or scopolamine.
Narcotic analgesics. Classification
Narcotic analgesics are classified by interaction with opium receptors, and also by chemical structure:
All narcotic analgesics affect the nervous system, suppressing the strongand very strong pain. They also cause physical and mental dependence. In the case of an overdose of narcotic analgesics, attempts to eliminate pain often result in a fatal outcome.
Non-narcotic analgesics. Classification
Non-narcotic analgesics are derivativespyrazolone (butadione, analgin), derivatives of alkanoic acids (voltaren), aniline derivatives (nanadol, paracetamol), derivatives of salicylic and anthranilic acids.
Non-narcotic analgesics do not causehabituation, euphoria, do not depress respiration and do not affect the processes of summation of subthreshold stimuli. The use of analgesics of this type leads to a reduction in pain, especially associated with the inflammatory process. Only suppression of the inflammatory reaction is not explained by the analgesic effect of these drugs. For example, butadione has a strong anti-inflammatory effect, but has no analgesic properties, and paracetamol does not suppress inflammation, but is an excellent analgesic.
Sometimes it may be necessary to use non-narcotic analgesics in combination with antispasmodics, which are distinguished by selective action on various organs.
