Abstract: To evaluate the analgesic efficacy of orally administered 50 mg propiram fumarate, 650 mg aspirin, 60 mg codeine phosphate, and placebo in acute post‐impaction dental pain, 159 patients with moderate or severe pain were randomly allocated to the four treatments in this single‐dose double‐blind, stratified, parallel‐group study. A research nurse questioned the patients at 1/2 hour and hourly for 6 hours after medicating. A standard format was used to question subjects about their pain… 
The efficacy of nonopioid analgesics for postoperative dental pain: a meta-analysis.
The evidence for the efficacy of nonopioid analgesics in the dental pain model was examined by conducting a meta-analysis. Studies were obtained by searching the literature from August 1996 back to
Propiram. A review of its pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic properties, and clinical use as an analgesic.
Propiram is an orally administered opioid analgesic with partial morphine-like agonist and weak antagonist properties. Analgesic efficacy of propiram, usually 50 or 100mg, appears comparable to that
Single dose oral aspirin for acute pain.
TLDR
Aspirin is an effective analgesic for acute pain of moderate to severe intensity with a clear dose-response and drowsiness and gastric irritation were seen as significant adverse effects even though the studies were single-dose.
Managing postoperative pain in adult outpatients: a systematic review and meta-analysis comparing codeine with NSAIDs
TLDR
It is found that adult outpatients report better pain scores, better global assessments and fewer adverse effects when their postoperative pain is treated with NSAIDs than with codeine.
Dissociation Between the Antinociceptive and Anti-Inflammatory Effects of the Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs
SummaryThe authors challenge the general view that the analgesic effect of the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) can be universally attributed to their inhibitory effects on the synthesis
Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Analgesics Other than Salicylates
TLDR
Few clinically significant drug interactions are associated with concomitant administration of the arylalkanoic acids or piroxicam and other drugs, but there is a theoretical potential for displacement reactions with drugs that are used at plasma concentrations high enough to exceed the binding capacity of their own primary binding sites.
Gastrointestinal Adverse Effects of Short-Term Aspirin Use: A Meta-Analysis of Published Randomized Controlled Trials
TLDR
During short-term use, aspirin is associated with a higher frequency of gastrointestinal complaints than other medications commonly used for treatment of pain, colds, and fever.

A model to evaluate mild analgesics in oral surgery outpatients
TLDR
Both aspirin 650 mg and acetaminophen 600 mg proved superior to placebo (p < 0.01) for all measures of effect with both parametric or nonparametric analyses, while codeine 30 mg was not significantly inferior to placebo in any analysis.
Naproxen, aspirin, and codeine in postpartum uterine pain
TLDR
Noonroxen and naproxen sodium are analgesics with efficacy equal to aspirin and may prove to be rational substitutes for currently available analgesics in some painful states in which longer pain relief would be desireable.
The Effects of Fendosal, Aspirin and Placebo on Postoperative Dental Pain A Dose‐Ranging and Efficacy Study
TLDR
Fendosal 400 mg appears to provide analgesia similar to that of aspirin 650 mg but with a substantially longer duration, Only a few mild side effects were reported.
Aspirin and codeine in two postpartum pain models
TLDR
The data imply that the two postpartum pain models are qualitatively different: episiotomy pain seems sensitive to both aspirin alld codeine, while uterine pain appears sensitive to aspirin but not to codeine.
A comparative evaluation of marketed analgesic drugs.
TLDR
As aspirin (650 mg) was superior to all agents tested in a double-blind crossover study of marketed drugs given by the oral route to relieve pain, and pentazocine produced sufficient gastrointestinal and Central-nervous-system side effects to make this agent of dubious value for ambulatory patients.

TLDR
The major advantages of the partial agonists of the morphine-type over the nalorphine-type drugs are that they have not been found to produce psychotomimetic reactions, and they seem to have fewer potentially deleterious effects in cardiac patients.
Combined Routes of Administration to Assay Oral Analgesia in Postoperative Pain
TLDR
Results from data on 308 patients suggest that future studies designed to establish the relative potencies of oral analgesics should use parenteral morphine as the standard in a combined oral/parenteral study because this approach provides a very sensitive measure of analgesia.
Assessment of the Abuse Potentiality of Morphinelike Drugs (Methods Used in Man)
TLDR
In an attempt to develop analgesics, antitussives, and antidiarrheals that were devoid of those properties of morphine leading to abuse, a large number of drugs have been synthesized and studied.
