The strongest oral prescription analygesic (pain relief)med is oxycodone.
Usually used in a combination tylenol-oxy drug called Percoset.
As long as it's not taken in an abusive way it's an excellent med for pain relief. It converts 100% to morphine.
Vicoden (hydromorphone) is effective too.
If he suggests codiene that's not a big help. It will depend on how you describe the pain levels you are feeling to him. Based on that he can choose the proper med.
morphine sulfate works too. oxycodone or oxycontin often doesn't have the same staying power.
p.s. Vercet is given through an IV, not taken like a pill. so i don't know if they would give it to you, it depends on a lot of different factors i guess. but since you're turning this into a bit of research i wanted to clear that up. at least in the states, they only give it in a sterile environment like a hospital or the surgical procedure area of a clinic.
