I received 8 sample packets and gave 4 away. I’ve taken Advil in the past; migraine, tablets, gel caps, etc. I used to pop Advil Migraine like it was candy. I eventually stopped taking over the counter pain relievers because my pain got so bad they just weren’t helpful anymore. I got on Gabapentin which helped with nerve pain. Over the years I’ve taken over the counter pain pills occasionally, mostly whatever store brand I happened to be at! I’ve taken these a couple of times. I find that they do kick in a little faster than what I normally take, and they do help. I have been getting more headaches and migraines again, while these don’t touch a migraine, they did help with a headache I had which is more than the ones I usually try do. I also took some on Sunday. We did pumpkins on Saturday, which resulted in me doing most of the work and by Saturday night my right shoulder was in a lot of pain. I figured I’d sleep it off, but Sunday it was still hurting, so I popped a couple of these and it took the edge off. I think next time I get some OTC pain relievers I’ll be getting a bottle of these. They seem to work faster and a litter better than what I am use to. I also noticed these to make me sick to my stomach, which is something I’m use to when I take OTC pain relievers. Some upset my stomach worse than others, but these don’t at all, which is a big plus. These are also fairly inexpensive. You can find these online at a lot of place and also in store.
