In brief: They can

Pain pills as well as other types of pills are mostly processed through liver. Certain medications can speed up or slow down the processing of other medications which can either lead to too little or too great an effect like drowsiness.
Doctors have lists of which drugs interact with which and can help you determine if you are having interactions that are not helpful to you. See your doctor.
