Thanks for writing to us.
The pain medicines will not help you much as long as the fracture fragments are not properly aligned. You need to give adequate rest to the wrist with splinting to avoid any displacement of the fractured fragments to avoid pain.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
