... competitive cheerleader and has a big competition coming up-It says she can have all 6 at one time on the first day but will this upset her stomach and how long after u stop the PAC does the pain come back? Also can u do back to back packs ? If the pain does come back?
Melissa; As with any medication we all react differently and also how well it works these are very strong and she should be able to take them just as directed on the pack. Normally taking as directed she should not have any stomach upset and if by chance she does she should take it with food or milk. But that is kind of rare for people to have that effect. Everyone is different on how long it could help with the pain some it could be a week others it's months. And it just depends on how bad her back is if the doctor well gives her another one. But most important your daughter is young and nothing is worth doing long term damage to her back because of a competitive sport of any type. You are into this for the long run with luck the one packet should do it. Good luck to her but she should get started on the pack..Best of luck to her.
