Reviews for Backaid Max

South Florida Writer · Taken for less than 1 month · June 10, 2020

"I have a lower back problem that flares up when aggravated by exercise about every 9 months. It causes sciatica-related pain and can be incapacitating and makes it especially hard to sit for long periods while using my computer. Aleve, Tylenol and Advil have not been particularly effective. Yesterday I tried Backaid Max and found noticeable relief for the first time in three days. I woke up this morning wondering how it works so well, and found this message board on google. It seems that the diuretic has a unique effect at least in my case."

"First time using this product... I was in so much pain I Couldn't bend down to get it off of the bottom shelf.... within 20 min I felt like a new man. Only reason I give it a 9out of 10 is because it was on the bottom shelf..."

"I had been suffering from sciatica pain for 2 weeks nothing seem to help. I could hardly walk and the spasms were horrible couldn’t even lay down in bed to sleep. I found Backaid at my local Walmart and thought for the price why not try it after about twenty minutes my pain and spasms were gone. I highly recommend this product!"

"I made a job change and my sciatic started to fair up. Not having medical insurance and taking Ibuprofen like crazy made for a long and painful day. When I came across Backaid Max saved my pain. I live and breath pain free due to this over the counter medicine. I will follow up with my doctor once my insurance kicks in next month. So grateful for this great pain reliever."

"I’ve been experiencing some bad sciatica pain for about two months it was so bad that I could hardly walk, or sleep because of the lower back pain then sitting on the toilet became painful I had no idea what was going on so I went to the doctor and they gave me muscle relaxer which did nothing and one day I was in the store just looking at medicines and I seen this one and decided to give it a try I took it the same day and noticed that it gave me some relief"

"I have tried a variety of Medications (which I hate taking meds) along with alternating heating pad & an ice pack.vNothing seems to ease the pressure & constant sharp, burning, & spasms in my lower back into my buttocks (sciatica)... until I've tried these Aspirin Free Backaid Max tabs... these have helped me within 20 or so mins of taking them. Its hard to shower, use the restroom, walk, lay down, sit, etc... it just hurt to move. This is the perfect OTC med I would recommend ... without these I wouldn't be able to stretch or get any therapy done. The cost is affordable & well worth it."

"OMG. This medicine is like a miracle pill for me. I have a bulging disc in my lower back which causes sciatica pain down my leg into my foot. I am a bowler and work in retail and this medicine really and truly works."

"My back muscles get really tight and painful every 3 days or so. I take this and within 20 mins I am not hurting at all. I cannot tell why because it is an NSAID coupled with a diuretic but somehow it works. Crazy. I love it anyways."

"I found this while looking for Acetaminophen to add to my prescription pain relief and the a comparable price so I gave it a try. The sciatica that was keeping me awake at night was virtually gone within 30 minutes. It's a pain reliever that I would recommend to anyone with low back/sciatic pain. I don't know why it works better than Acetaminophen alone, but it's well worth the price!"

"I go through over all body pain due to Lupus & Fibromyalgia & my lower back pain is the pits even though I take prescription pain relievers. I've mentioned to my Dr about changing them, feeling that I'm just used to them & therefore they don't help the way they did before. So now have I taken upon myself to try this OTC product & was amazed & delighted as to how well it took care of my back pain including my hips... It took at least 20-30 min to take effect & now I take it faithfully (for the time being :) I very much recommend it to anyone who suffered with back pain, you wont be disappointed plus its so affordable."

"I'm suffering from sciatica and was really excited after reading the reviews in here. I've been to the Dr & Hospital and nothing they give me works at all. Backaid Max did nothing for my pain so save yourself the money and just ride it out, because this stuff doesn't help."

Screaming Sciatic Nerve · March 1, 2019

"Today was the first initial day starting the medication. I was diagnosed with sciatica in 2017 and had a flare up February 2019! It was the most excruciating pain EVER! After a couple of hospital visits, steroids, pain meds, muscle relaxers and neurotin I'm 2 weeks in and still experiencing a lot of discomfort. I did notice that after about 20 minutes Backaid Max did give a little relief. I’m optimistic that this pill will at least take the edge off at night and I can get some rest."

"These are currently saving my sanity. I've been having really bad throbbing, pulsing headaches for about a week now. 9 out of 10 pain level. Two doctors now and so far no relief. Going to see a third, but in the meantime, I've been taking these because I can't take ibuprofen. I have no idea what Pamabrom even does for acetaminophen, but this stuff works where Tylenol 8 hour didn't even touch my pain. I take one pill, every 8 hours. That's it. No side effects that I can tell."

"I came across this looking for normal go to for my back, was kinda leary but thought what the heck, took it when I got home and before bed, woke up and my lower back isn't hurting at all... I have DDD with 4 back surgeries already... I honestly didn't think this would do anything...but I did my normal nightly routine with pain meds and the heating pad... hoping it wasn't just a fluke and keeps working!!!"

"Very sudden and severe backpain after bending sideways in bathroom continuing for 4 days reduced 80 % with two doses of this medicine. Ibubrofen ,SN 15 and Advil could not bring down pain. Good relief from pain."

"OMG! I had been having back pain for 3 days. At first I thought I did something at work because of the type of work I do a lot of lifting heavy paint daily, then I thought maybe when I started back exercising I may have pulled a muscle not sure but I couldn't bend over, when I use the bathroom I had to turn sideways, when I went to bed at night had trouble sleeping and then the pain went from my back to the whole left side of my body was hurting, so I put a heating pad on me didn't work! Tried pain pills from the doctor put me to sleep but did nothing for pain! Went to work the next day and looked for back items read the boxes saw what was being sold the most and gave it a try I also bought the wraps for 97 cents and also bought the small packages of menthol for .97 that you put in your water for minor aches and pain I'm feeling "

"I purchased Backaid Max yesterday for a bulging disc, as Doctor is only prescribing one pill a day of Norco to be broken in half . I was in so much pain and I took this without prescription med and it worked. I am so glad I found this to supplement with my med. I will be having surgery soon and I am in shock with how little medicine the Dr. is prescribing for my pain . I also need another surgery after this one . I could not be more thankful for finding BACKAID MAX ."

MM in CA · Taken for 1 to 2 years · September 17, 2021

"Overworked muscles retain water. The pressure in the muscles from the water retention causes pain and cramps. Backaid Max is composed of acetametaphin (e.g., Tylenol) and a diuretic (water releaser). The diuretic releases retained water in the muscles, which subsides the pain, swelling, and joint stiffness. No topical ointment, heating pads, cold packs, etc. can released retained water in overworked muscles. Puffiness and pain behind the knee cap joint is due to water or fluid retention from overworked legs. Backside Max works in that instance as well. I've given it out on construction job sites, and people get fast relief. This is my take on this product, and for me, it works."
