You can buy Aspirin (a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID)), over the counter it is one of the least health's attacking medication for the majority of people with backache. The old Indians of North America used the bark of willow trees of which salicylic acid was the active ingredient to alleviate pain, headache and fever. Aspirin contains anti-inflammatory agents and is a pain reliever at the same time. Nevertheless, the dosage of Aspirin is important to be effective. The dose for adults is two to three 325 milligram tablets all 3 to 4 hours. For people with minor stomach irritation, the tablets should be taken with a meal or an antacid (preventing or counteracting acidity in the stomach). Also a stomach irritation can be reduced by drinking a glass of water with the Aspirin. Coated Aspirin can also be used for sensitive stomachs but is not well absorbed by the body, and is therefore less helpful.
Your doctor will recommend you (to his or her best knowledge) the best medication for your back problem, but be aware of the side effects it may have.
