I have back problems. They are the worst when I first get up. I need something that works rate now. My pharmacy said to get the capsules because they work faster than the tablets. Is this true?

If you can't trust your pharmacist, were all in a big heap of hurt! I would trust what they told you. You can also research it yourself on the "Drugs A to Z" on the top blue bar. Find the name and read the "professional" version. The worst that can happen is they don't work as expected. However, both versions are fast release.
