In brief: One that works

There is no best medication.
You would be well advised to start at the lowest dose and titrate up under a dictor's direction.

In brief: Depends

The best medication depends on the source of your pain.
For example, the best medication for migraine headache differs from the best medication for pain caused by a pinched nerve, or pain caused by a stomach ulcer. Start by seeing your doctor first to delineate the cause of your pain.
