In brief: Any specific group?

There are many different chronic pain medicines, and each one has advantages, side effects and risks.
Some types of pain respond better to certain medicines than others. Any specific group (TCA, AED, Opioids)?

Main caution is use of narcotics as first-line chronic pain medication. They are not effective for chronic pain management (are ok as a short-term intermittent supplement), & are addicting.
