What drugs are in the salicylates drug class? ## Hi Gail, From what I've researched, there's actually quite a few medications within this drug class. Here's a list containing some of the US-based Salicylate medications I could find online: Azulfidine, Amigesic, Bayer, Colazal, Canasa, Dolobid, Dipentum, Doans, Ecotrin, Giazo, Kaopectate, Pepto Bismol, Pentasa, Salflex, Trilisate, and Tricosal.

I've personally used acupuncture for a painful nerve in my foot and it really helped! I also read that lavender essential oil can be beneficial. Have you ever looked into using essential oils? If not, here is a link to a site that gives information about specific oils that work well for pain:
