The best way for most people to take pain medication is by mouth. This method is simpler, more convenient and comfortable, and less costly than any other form. Skin patches are also a reasonable choice in many situations. However, some situations require another way of delivering the pain medication into the body. In such cases, there are a number of possible methods to choose. Three good options include subcutaneous (under the skin), intravenous (into a vein), and epidural (into the area where the nerve roots come out of the spinal cord).
