For Pain "Suffered a small fractured upper back in April by running my vacuum. It has now healed but I still have occasional back pain., Tried many over the counter meds with no help. Searched out Doans. Took my first 2 Saturday at 1 p.m.,, pain gone by 7 p.m. Took 2 more. Woke up today no pain. Took 2 more at 9 a.m., so far no pain. I think I found the answer to the pain problem."

For Inflammatory Conditions "I want to urgent care they gave me a pain shot because my back was so sore and I think I it was muscle lower back . Suffered for two weeks and wanted to do a x-ray but I gave up waiting for an x-ray after two hours at Springfield imagery then I remembered Doans pills. I felt relief after the second dosage, it’s not totally gone but it’s so much better than it was last two weeks ."

For Pain "Tried Doans Pills because tylenol and aleve just didn’t help my sacroiliac pain. The pain has been mild and ongoing for a year since a fall last January and has been manageable with ice and heat packs. But I am on my feet more through the day now since switching jobs and the pain had become unbearable...took two Doan’s and the pain was gone, I literally almost cried, thought I would need to have injections to get rid of the pain. This is definitely my new go to pain medication"

For Pain "I have lower back pain to the point that I'm in a lot of pain after walking only 20 minutes or so. I was getting very discouraged. One morning, my partner gave me some Doan's Pills and my back pain disappeared. I was amazed and we started going to stores to try to find it. Not as easy as we thought. Finally, we found some and I hope it continues to help me as much as it has the first day. Keep your fingers crossed."

For Inflammatory Conditions "As for the pain the Doan's extra strength we're like a dream come true. On the 3rd day I woke up with ear noise awful ringing in both ears. Researched and found it was a side effect of medicine. I am still ringing in both ears so today I will not take it and see if it stops."

For Pain "Right side of back from waist area so painful can't hardly move. Had high hopes, since Doan's extra strength was a different ingredient from Tylenol or Advil. It didn't even begin to touch the pain. In fact it got worse. Had to take 1300 mg of Tylenol 2 hours later just to function. I'm so sorry Doan's."

For Pain "My husband really likes Doans Extra Strength Pills but lately he gets coupons that are out of date (12/31/21) why are they still putting out dated coupons in the boxes? For the last few months the coupons were good. We're on fixed incomes and love $1.00 coupons. We have 4 out dated coupons. My husband buys 4 or 5 boxes at one time. We both have really bad back problems and take Doans to help with the pain."
