Ziconotide is a pain reliever that is used to treat chronic, severe pain. Unlike many painkillers, this medication does not use narcotics, so people who are allergic to narcotics or have a history of narcotic drug abuse can use it. Ziconotide works by blocking pain impulses’ signals to the brain.

Patients who have a history of mental illnesses, especially psychosis, should not use this medication. Ziconotide can cause hallucinations, cognitive impairments and mood swings.

  • Stiff neck
