Hello,

Drugs that contain paracetamol, Tramadol, or opioids, are painkillers that don't cause any harm to the stomach. Suppositories of painkillers also have no adverse effects on the stomach. Discuss these issues with your doctor.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Erion Spaho, Neurologist, Surgical
