5.0 out of 5 stars A great topical analgesic! 16 Feb 2013
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com

I have used these for several years to relieve aches and pains from muscle spasms and arthritis. Wrap one around a swollen finger and the pain and inflammation goes away. a couple on my back or hip and I can relax tense muscles. I have even, on occasion, put one on my forehead to relieve a tension headache-- and it works. I can use about four at a time before I start tasting them, so that is my limit.

My newest experiment with the patches is to cut a strip lengthwise into three strips and wrap one at time around my finger which has a little wart on it. In three days the wart has gotten smaller and less bumpy. It looks like a small bandage (much nicer looking than the old cure: duct tape).

When I first put them on my skin gets a little hot and tingly feeling. That is just the analgesics starting to work. It's normal unless your skin gets a rash or looks burned. Then after about five or ten minutes the pain just goes away. Sometimes I have to reapply patches, but often one application is enough.

A friend of mine recently introduced me to this product. It works great for my knee. Only wished i would have done a little more research before buying it off here. Paid almost $15 bucks for a 140 pack and just the other day found it at Costco for half the price for the same amount.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works without you really noticing 28 Feb 2014
By Karen - Published on Amazon.com

I had purchased a small box of these from Walmart awhile back. They were kind of hidden on the bottom shelf near the other medicated patches.. They were much cheaper than the other brands and I kind had my doubts they were very good.. But I was very surprised when I used one on my hand (for arthritis relief).. they don't stink like the other brands, they don't really heat up the skin like the others, but they work.. They just quietly work..

My pain is on the side of my hand, below my thumb.. These are small in size (about 2 1/2" x 1 1/2") so they fit on this area really well. I used to cut the other brands into small patches to use in the same location, but they would start curling up on the ends and didn't stick for very long. I don't have that problem with these..

I wear a hand brace to bed and I occasionally wear one of these under it. I can really tell the difference if I don't use one of these..

My husband has wrist pain and when he noticed my using these, he asked what they were.. I gave him one to try and he's been hooked on them ever since.. I bought this box of 140 patches so we both have a nice supply of them..

The box says these medicated patches reach back to the 18th century... They're made in Japan and are used around the world, coming to the United States in 1987...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for topical pain relief. 15 Nov 2013
By J. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com

I love these things. They do help with localized pain relief, and is something like a piece of white duct tape with muscle cream on it.

First- this price is very good on Amazon.

Second- I can use as many as I need for whatever is hurting (degenerative disc disease, degenerative joint disease, fibromyalgia, chronic migraines, and neuropathy)… sometimes one works, and sometimes I need 2 or 3 at a time.

Third- I don't have to go hunting for it at a higher price, when I already hurt.

Cons: If you pull this off of an area with hair, GO SLOWLY !!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazed at the quick pain relief -- does contain aspirin 19 Aug 2013
By regency reader - Published on Amazon.com
I remember my father wearing these patches on his shoulders when I was a child. 30 years later, I decided to give them a try. I have chronic back pain, usually mild but it can flare up. Recently, the muscles around my shoulder blades was feeling really tight. Not so much painful but rather annoying and uncomfortable enough that it did keep me from sleeping. In the past, I would just either grimace & bear it for several nights until it the discomfort died down or else take advil. This time, I put a few patches of Salonpas on the areas and within an hour, the tightness was gone. I only did it for 1 night too.

I also recently had some pain in my hips/sacral area related to my lower back pain. It was an intense, tingling pain that started at my left hip and went down my thigh. The first time I experienced this pain, it was so intense I had to take ibuprofen combined with acetaminophen (yes, they can be combined--I checked first) every few hours for several days until I could see my chiropractor. I dislike taking meds so taking so much and so often was extremely rare for me. My chiropractor fixed me up but a few months later, I started having the same pain, a result of improper or over-stretching. This time, I used 1 patch of Salonpas on my left hip and 3 patches down the outside of my thigh. Again, in less than an hour, the sharp, tingling pain was gone. When I removed the patches after 8 hours, a milder tingling returned, so I put another patch just on my hip this time. I repeated 1 more time after this (total 1.5 days) and the pain stayed away. I can feel that my hip is still somewhat inflamed though so I am being more careful about not over-stressing it until it's fully healed, but the Salonpas made it bearable. When I saw my chiropractor after the 1.5 days I had been using the patches, he poked and prodded and said my hip wasn't too bad.

I noticed some other reviewers commenting that the patches are too small. At first I worried that I ordered the wrong (smaller) size but after checking, this is the same size I've been using and that I remember my father using. For larger areas on the body, multiple patches may be required but really, for the price, it's still a great deal.

I have not had too much issue with the patches not sticking to my skin. There was 1 particular area on my thigh where the patch didn't stick too well. The patches right next to that area stuck just fine. And I had the same problem when I changed the patches the next day. So I suspect there might have been some residue there, maybe from patches my chiropractor used when he hooked me up to the electrical stimulation machine.

Note: This product contains methyl salicylate, which is an NSAID that is a relative of aspirin. As I mentioned, I am not crazy about taking pain meds but at least the topical version isn't likely to cause complications with your liver or stomach.
