      I have had back pain for over 15 years, and I am always searching for a product that will take some of the pain away so I can function throughout my day.

      I am not a big fan of prescription pain medication because I am afraid that I could become addicted to them, so I usually opt for the over-the-counter pills instead. Usually I take Ibuprofen, 800


      mg at a time. This gives me a very small amount of relief.

      Recently I saw a commercial on TV for Aleve, claiming to keep pain at bay for the entire day. I thought I would give it a try. I purchased a bottle and took one pill, as directed on the label. After about 30 minutes I didn’t notice any relief in my ...


      • back pain.

        I read the label again, and noticed that it said I could take 2 tablets for my first dose, so the next day I tried that. Even after taking 2 pills, I didn’t notice a significant reduction in my back pain.

        One thing I did notice, is that the Aleve upsets my stomach some, especially when taken without food. Also, although it was not

        effective on my back pain, I have taken it for achy muscles after exercising, and it does seem to work for that.

        So, I will continue to take Ibuprofen for my back pain until I can find something more effective. I would recommend Aleve for minor muscle aches, but not severe back pain. Also, remember to take it with food or milk to avoid stomach upset.
