Having back pain is never any fun and when I'm hurting I want relief. So recently when I was having a prolonged spell of lower back/hip pain I decided to try something new. I went to the store and while there I found Excedrin Back & Body Extra Strength.
I was surprised to see that Excedrin Back & Body Extra Strength containsAcetaminophen 250 mg and 250 mg Buffered aspirin. The aspirin is buffered with calcium carbonate. I believe calcium carbonate is what you find in Tums. I expected there to be more ingredients. This product is suppose to help with arthritis, muscular aches and back ache.
I like this medicine. It does not completely make the pain go away for me but it does help quite a bit. I find that I does not last for the full six hours though. I like that its buffered because it does not upset my stomach.
All warnings on the package should be heeded because some people should not be taking this.
