Ibuprofen and naproxen can be addictive if used in large amounts or for long periods of time. In rare cases, ibuprofen and naproxen may increase the risk of bleeding from cuts or wounds; however, these drugs are not known to cause heart failure or stroke as do some other painkillers like Vicodin , Oxycontin , and Percocet.

Codeine is a narcotic that has been used for a long time. It’s also addictive and should be used only when absolutely necessary for pain relief.
