My hubby has his morning med s then he takes his pain reliever you have all heard about BAYER aspirin but his is BAYER BACK AND BODY. He told me he doesnt hurt as bad  getting in and out of the semi as it used to. He bought BACK AND BODY a friend told him about it.He takes 2 about everyday  unless he forgets them at home if so he knows he can pick up ,a bottle at about any store . BACK AND BODY and his move free work together too get him threw his sometimes long days.I tried it and for me its good for my back it helps if i dont have my tramadol handy on trips we take. the white pills have the words BAYER BACK AND BODY  in orange letters and are plain on other side. T hey containaspirin 500mg and also be aware this medication has 32.5mg of CAFFENE.   Caffene is a pain killer it seems and aspirin always has been most peoples choice at least before all the new medications came on the scene.

Bayer Back & Body just does not do much for me. I have tried it multiple times but have gotten no pain relief. There are better over the counter pain relievers out there.

I trust Bayer as a brand and have had success with some of their other over the counter pain medications. I saw this at Wal-Mart and decided I might as well try it since their other products work well. For some reason their Back and Body does absolutely nothing for me. It advertises fast pain relief but that was not the case. I tried the product after twisting my ankle a little bit and it did nothing for the pain. I tried another over the counter pain reliever and it worked just fine. I tried this product a few more times when I had minor pain but it still did nothing for me.

I have no idea why this medication is so ineffective for me but I do not recommend it. Other forms of Bayer are much more effective and easier to find in stores.

    Comments about Bayer Back & Body:

    I use Bayer Back & Body every day at work. It is the ONLY thing I can take (without upsetting my stomach) to alleviate the pain in my feet / legs, which I am on for several hours at a time. Bayer Back & Body is very gentle on the stomach and it even has some caffeine in it, which means it can also help with headaches at the same time. In the past, I have had to choose which pain to treat when I also had a headache. But Bayer Back & Body seems to treat any and all pain I normally have, even if I only take a half dose. I have yet to find a better product for work pain, and I have tried them all!

      Comments about Bayer Back & Body:

      I have arthritis in my right knee, and at times it is very difficult for me to walk. I have 2 jobs (I teach a morning class at a local college and I work at a night clinic as a nurse) and I am on my feet about 12-14 hours a day. I tried many OTC medications and this one has helped me the most. I recommend this to family and patients

      excellent product

      Comments about Bayer Back & Body:

      dThis product works better than most. I have arthritis in my back at a very young age but this seems to be one of the best non prescribed medications I have used. I generally have to take 6-8 different pills per day to function at work with other medications. This product tends to relieve issues after 2 pills in the morning and 2 before bed.

      Great Pain Relief, Keeps You Wide Awake

      By 

      from Hartford, CT

      Comments about Bayer Back & Body:

      I really like Bayer and have used many of their products. Unfortunately I was not impressed with their Back and Body pain reliever.

      I accidentally grabbed this one day instead of my regular brand when I was shopping and realized my mistake only after I got home and was about to take it. I decided to give it a try anyway.

      This did do a very nice job of quickly relieving the pain in my lower back. The stiffness and tightness were gone within an hour.

      What I did not like about this is that it contains caffeine. That's fine if you take this in the morning, but I happened to take this after a long day of working outside and I was up half the night with my eyes wide open. The level of caffeine must be on par with an espresso because it had me awake and energized for quite some time. This is not a good thing at two in the morning.

      So, if you're not sensitive to caffeine or are taking this in the morning this is a very good product. However, think twice before taking these after dinner as you may not get much sleep.

      Solid Pain Reliever

      By 

      from USA

      Comments about Bayer Back & Body:

      Bayer Back and Body asprin is one of my preferred pain relievers. When I have used it, it has generally taken care of the pain I was feeling at the time quickly and effectively. It did not seem to matter what sort of pain it was, whether it was a headache, muscle pain, or joint issues that I was experiencing at the time, Bayer Back and Body worked reasonably well. Bayer Back and Body asprin does appear to be more effective than most other over-the-counter pain relievers, but not greatly so, which does bring me to the biggest problem with it. Considering that it is fairly expensive in the local stores that carry it, and usually not carried in the stores that tend to have lower prices on this sort of stuff, and given that it is not overwhelmingly more effective than many of the over-the-counter alternatives, it is somewhat hard to justify spending the extra money to get this product. Still, if one has the money to spend, or needs to have a 'big gun' available to take care of the more severe pain that the more economical products are not so good at, Bayer Back and Body asprin is a great product to use.

      Bayer Aspirin

      By 

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Bayer Back & Body:

      With my lifestyle I have always been used to being on my feet for more than half of the day which over the course of the years has put more and more strain on my overall body but especially in my lower back area. I would frequently try adjusting myself and stretching to try and relieve some of the intense pressure I feel in my lower back but I soon came to realize that I desperately needed a little more help than that. I went to my local drug store and just decided to browse through my options to see what might appeal to my specific needs personally which was what made me decide on the Bayer back and body tablets. I hadn't really previously used any other type of Bayer products but I do know the brand name and the price was reasonable. I started off by taking two at night about an hour or so before I decide to go to sleep and so far it has been really effective in pain relief.

      Does a good job of masking pain while you heal

      By 

      from Westchester, IL

      Comments about Bayer Back & Body:

      I don't like taking any types of drugs/medicine unless I have no choice. I was having difficultly with my lower back from working on my dead lift form so I turned to Bayer Back & Body. These pills are relatively small, which make them easy to swallow. I took one tablet and waited for it to take affect on my back. It took about 30 minutes for the tablet to start working. I still had some slight discomfort in my back, but I was able to manage it. I took another tablet right before bed and when I woke up in the morning I felt great. I don't know believe that the tablet healed me, but it did a good job of masking the pain while my body healed itself. I stopped taking the tablet to see what would happen for a couple of days and my back remained fine. Before my next dead lifting session I took a Bayer one hour prior to working out and I didn't have any problems. Once I figured out the correct dead lifting form I no longer need to take Bayer for my lower back. I still will take a tablet if another part of my body is in pain, but it's very rare. I would definitely recommend Bayer Back & Body to anyone for temporary relief of minor pain.

      Works great on pain!

      By 

      from Pennsylvania

      Comments about Bayer Back & Body:

      I get migraines for a week out of the month during my menstrual cycle due to fluctuating hormones. I also have osteoarthritis in my lower back. The more active I am the worse the pain and inflammation. Now that it is summer I am constantly mowing grass, gardening, and being much more active. I also hate to pass up activities with my children because my back hurts too much to move around. Although I would have to say Excedrin Back & Body is my favorite, Bayer Back & Body is a close second. It works great to relieve the intense pain I get. This product does contain caffeine so I do not recommend taking it at night when you have to get to sleep. This works great for the whole family. It relieves all sorts of aches and pains. It is more expensive than a lot of pain relievers out there but it does an awesome job of relieving pain fast. I have often found that the generic brands work but not as well.

      Good Product

      By 

      from Kingsport, TN

      Comments about Bayer Back & Body:

      I have been using Bayer for years and thought I would try the back and body. It works really fast. I just started a new exercise program so I needed something to help with all the aches and pains that come from using muscles that haven't been used in a while. Bayer worked fast and didn't upset my stomach
