Reviews for Magnesium salicylate

Mary August 2, 2020

Doans Pills Extra Strength (magnesium salicylate): “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.”

Doans Pills Extra Strength (magnesium salicylate): “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”

“I am 76 years old and for the last several years I get lower back pain from exertion, I've been to chiropractors and tried prescription muscle relaxers, nothing really helped. Just this week and out of desperation I tried Doan's pills. Within a couple of hours the pain had eased up quite a bit and within 6 hours or so had nearly gone away, first relief I've had for a long time. I got these at WalMart, $5.49 for 24 pills, next time I'm there I'll stock up. Buck”

Doan's Pills (magnesium salicylate): “Bad back and herniated discs problems and nothing helps relieve it but doans. I've tried prescription drugs for years and other otc stuff. I gave these a try and they work. They do give me heart burn but I can chew tums.”

Doans Pills Extra Strength (magnesium salicylate): “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.”

“I suddenly found myself suffering from sciatica. It was very debilitating and missed 3 days of work. I was prescribed muscle relaxers and a steroid pack. Regular painkillers did nothing for it and wore off after a couple hours. Doan's pills was the only otc drug that worked and allowed me at least 6 hours of sleep. I had no side effects and fully endorse Doan's pills as a great otc pain killer.”

DeWitt's Pain Reliever (magnesium salicylate): “I am a college student and I have found this product exceptionally useful. I use it for about everything from sports, studying, to even partying. I use this product after a hard day of practice. I use this product after leaning over a book all night and my neck hurts. I use this product for a hangover after a long night out at the bars.”

DeWitt's Pain Reliever (magnesium salicylate): “I strongly recommend that everyone uses this product. I am a very skeptical person when it comes to putting anything in my body, which is why I am so paranoid when it comes to many products. DeWitt's Pain Reliever though is handled by a 100 year old company though and that gives me a sense of security. For the effectiveness of this product, I can't give it anything less than 5 out of 5 stars because it has become my new aspirin. I use it for headaches and soreness all the time!”

“I've had back pain ever since catching a bigger person fall. I've tried everything Tylenol, Ibuprofen, Advil, generics. I never thought to buy 24 caplet of anything based on the freq I had to use them. After years of living with it I just got used to feeling back pain, that it's always there, and just have to deal with it for the rest of my life until I used Extra Strength Doan's. Within half hour my back pain was completely gone for me. The reason I'm on this website because I was looking to see how it works because I was in complete shock that it did and ran into stories similar to mine. I don't know how but it worked for me!”

Doans Pills Extra Strength (magnesium salicylate): “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.”
