For Muscle Pain "I have tried all types of pain relief. Finally I found Salonpas gel on the shelf at Walgreens. I'm a nurse and the long hours are taking a toll on my back and hips. I must say it works wonders. It's worth the odor, which goes away after a while. I have shared the Salonpas gel with 5 of my friends and co-workers. They all love it. Unfortunately the price has increased since I started using it. Anyway I can get coupons? Greatly recommended. Even better than steroid injections and pain pills."

For Muscle Pain "I have bursitis in both hips that developed prior to back surgery. The pain is bearable during the day, but at night, I wake up with pain because I'm a side sleeper. I started using Salonpas gel and, I have been able to sleep through the night without waking. I get cortizone injections when needed, but when I can't get an appointment quick enough, this is fantastic! And for roughly $8.00 at Walmart... you can't beat it!"

"Salonpas gel patch does not adhere well, especially at the ends. So it lifts and bulks under your clothes, very frustrating. Unfortunately I bought a big pack, used 3 stuck with 12 that I won't use. Some relief but not anymore than any lidocaine ointment. Don't recommend AT ALL!"

For Muscle Pain "I used the gel for the first time today on my neck and left shoulder. Felt instant relief! Only thing I'm not fond of is the overwhelming scent."
