I have chronic back and leg pain from arthritis(I guess) and inflamation, also from a small herniated disc(l-4,l-5) Also hip pain and stiffness that prevents me from walking normally almost 80% of the time, particularly if I've been sitting for more than a few minutes.I've had steroid injections that relieve the hip pain temporarily. I have used large doses of ibuprofen, aspirin and/or tylenol with almost NO result. Even Lortab does not resolve my pain completely. I recently tried Doan's just for the heck of it, and I seriously though I must have died in my sleep, as I woke up virtually pain free with just one dose. Is it more likely to cause kidney and liver damage than ibuprofen?? Can you take it every day??

I do not know what they contain (well actually I see they have paracetamol and sodium salicylate but am no sure what those are. What I do know is that everyone is very very different when it comes to pain management. The thing that works for me may not work for you and vice versa. You are very lucky to have found something that is so easily obtained and has very few side effects. Side effects mar the situation so easily. Congratulations! I think you can find a lot of information on Doans on the internet.
