Suffer from back and neck pain when I lift heavy items at my job, am stressed, or am over-tired. Stand, lift, walk and climb all day, so hurt often! This OTC med works so well, I had to comment! Have taken several OTC drugs, but nothing helps like this med. Buy some and keep it around if you even occasionally have serious back pain.

Since a surgery as few years ago I have had to deal with hip, SI and piriformis pain on a regular basis - this is the only OTC that will touch the pain and give me relief! Much easier to take 2 of these than 800 or 1000mg of Advil or worse a narcotic like Flexaril or Vicoden.

I've used this for lower back muscle pain for years, and am still amazed at how good this stuff works. Get the generic form of Doans Pills at Rite Aid called "BACKACHE RELIEF". Stress, sitting for long periods, and working outside in the heat all trigger my back pain - can't work, can't get to sleep, etc ..... one dose & I'm 100% half an hour later! This medication is ...

Comment:
Have had 2 back surgeries. Was experiencing severe pain months after surgery. Prescription narcotics, Physical therapy, epidural steroid injections, rest, TENS treatment, massage heat, and ice did not improve back pain at all. Took one dose of this med and pain was about 80% better. Now I know what to use when my back hurts.

Comment:
I used Doan's to help with back pain and was very surprised to find that it worked wonders!!! Advil (ibuprofen) Aleve (naproxen) did nothing to relieve the pain. This medication is much better than prescription opiates which create serious addictions.
