Degenerative disc disease commonly affects the lumbar (lower back) vertebrae. As a result, pain, numbness, tingling and/or muscle weakness may be experienced in the back, buttocks and legs. Pain relief treatments for degenerative disc disease range in intensity and invasiveness.
Medicine for Degenerative Disc Disease Pain Relief
Perhaps the most common treatment for degenerative disc disease is medicine. Over the counter pain relievers like acetaminophen (Tylenol) or NSAIDs like ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) and naproxen (Aleve) are usually tried first. If OTC pills do not provide pain relief, doctors may prescribe:
- Narcotics (e.g. Vicodin)
- Nerve pain medications (e.g. Lyrica)
- Muscle relaxers (e.g. Valium, Flexoril)
Side effects of prescription drugs used for degenerative disc disease treatment range from dizziness and drowsiness to more severe risks of dependency, gastrointestinal bleeding and liver damage.

Invasive treatments like these are very costly and may not even provide complete pain relief from degenerative disc disease.
