Q: Is there a narcotic pain medication out there that does not contain aspirin/tylenol/ibu?

My doctor has taken me off of Narco, which he had been using to replace hydrocodone due to the fact that my blood test came back with my akaline/phosphate level being too high. I was on a cocktail of Neuronton/Morphine/Tramadol/Narco tablets. With the Narco being withdrawn you can imagine that there is more pain that I now have to deal with. I know that he is trying to protect my liver, which is important and I appreciate that. I am just hoping to find a pain medication without the aspirin factor so that I may achieve a level of pain that I can live with. I have chronic pain and have been on meds for it for about 4 years

There are pure forms of narcotic drugs available.  Oxycontin is pure oxycodone. Fentanyl - the strongest pain killer - is pure narcotic. Morphine (morphine sulfate) is another.  Hopefully he can find something that works for you! Good luck.
