Lots of meds will help, really depends on you and what your Doc says. Sometimes the muscles around the area are the culprit, so they may point you toward a muscle relaxer. If you mean pain meds specifically, again, some things work better for some people than others. Methadone is a great pain reliever, especially because it's cheap, but it's very hard to get off it once you take it for a while. An opiate may be best too, and there are many choices there. Just depends on what's causing your pain and what exactly you mean by "strong."
