Posted on May 17, 2015 at 4:20 PM

Narcotics refer to a class of prescription pain killers derived from opiates. Narcotics blocks pain signal from the brain to reduce pain. Narcotics reduce the feeling of pain by blocking pain signal from the brain and the central nervous system. Opioids are a type of narcotic pain medication when you have a mild headache or muscles ache. An over- the-counter pain reliever is usually enough to make you feel better-but if your pain is more severe you doctor might recommend something stronger which is opioid-varieties of narcotic include codeine, morphine, hydromorpone, oxycodone and hydrocodone, which is commonly know by it brand name of vicodin.

Narcotics work by binding to receptor in the brain, which blocks the feeling of pain. When use carefully and under doctors direct care, they can be effective at reducing pain. These drugs can be abused and addictive and have been associated with accidental overdose death. Your doctors may suggest that you take your medicine only when you feel pain, so always take narcotics as prescribed.

Narcotics attach to receptors on nerves in the brain that increase the threshold to pain and reduce the perception of pain. Some adult have chronic pain which require proper pain management since long term use can lead to drug addiction and tolerance. Most men and women take narcotic analgesic for short period until pain lessen or goes away.
