Many otc pain relievers and some prescription pain medications actually contain caffeine (I've never taken a prescription medication that contains caffeine, but as I understand it there are a few, especially for migraines).

For example, Exedrine containes acetominophen, aspirin, and caffeine.

With prescription pain meds, caffeine not only boosts the pain relief, it also helps counteract some of the sedating effects of the pain meds.
