It is rare for me to have back pain bad enough to warrant the help of a pill. However, when I do, my ONLY choice is Robax Platinum. From the first time I tried it, I knew this was for me. The relief was gentle without making me feel dopey. I do sound a little like the commercial but it really does get me moving again much faster than anything I have tried before. Thanks Robax!

I was using prescription meds periodically that were hard on the stomach. No stomach upset with these and they do the trick.
