there are 40 patches of Salonpas in that box.
They make several kinds, I only use the Methylsalicylate one.
I've used them for years...they are great. I have stacked them on my back
for larger issues but thankfully I rarely get back pain. I use the Salonpas
mostly on my feet, occasionally on the neck and knees.
The new Aleve Liquigels are far superior to Aleve tablets. I only use Aleve
when in a severe pain flare. Not every day by any means. If one can find
other solutions to pain, than NSAIDs that is best. Aleve is naproxen sodium only in 220mg
tablets (Rx is 550) The sodium version of naprosyn is faster acting.
Have you tried Lidoderm? I like these also. (but they are very expensive too).
