Safe Pain Relief

     Summer is coming and many people are working out harder than ever.  Getting fit sometimes results in aches and pains and reaching for OTC pills is not always the healthiest solution.  Doctors agree that topical OTC analgesic products, in the form of creams, gels, sprays and patches, are a healthier solution for pain management.  
     “Acetaminophen has a narrow therapeutic window, meaning the difference between a safe and effective dose and an overdose, which could led to liver toxicity, is a relatively small increment in milligram consumption,” says Dr. Aristotle Economou, author and acclaimed Beverly Hills physician. “Topical pain relievers such as creams, gels and sprays work locally and largely reduce, although they do not entirely eliminate the systemic risk, that OTC pain pills can present. The Salonpas patches are the first and only topical non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSADs) approved through the FDA’s rigorous New Drug Application process which is the same process used to approve prescription medicines.”
     By putting the medicine right at the site of pain, bypassing the stomach and liver, Salonpas can use less medicine to deliver an effective dose. The full product line includes the Salonpas Pain Relief Patch and Arthritis Pain Patch which are the only FDA-approved OTC pain patches, Salonpas Pain Relieving GEL-Patch HOT, and Salonpas Pain Relieving Jet Spray and the Salonpas DEEP Relieving Gel.

     I have tried the the Salonpas Pain Relieving Jet Spray and the Pain Relieving Patches and I found both to be VERY effective.  You can buy these products online or find them at your local retailer such at Walgreens, CVS, RiteAid, Walmart, Target or Kmart.  Stay safe and enjoy this wonderful method of pain relief.  In good health~paige  :)
