    These work great at alleviating pain due to muscle strain. I have issues with my neck and shoulders. If I apply one of these patches before bed, I can sleep pain-free without having to take pain medicine or sleep aids. They stay put, but removal is easy and painless. In my opinion, this works better than Icy Hot cream - probably because it stays put so well and can't be rubbed off. I wish they put some methyl salicylate (wintergreen) in these patches, though - I don't care for the smell of straight menthol. A minor complaint, though - not worthy of removing a star over.

    Pads do not stay in place if active. Clothing or movement makes them curl up, come loose, etc. They do not "stay in place" long enough to do what they are supposed to do. Very poor product. Cream is better. Product called Salonpas works much better, stays on longer, etc.

        I use this product on my neck area at night when my neck acts up. It gets me through the night beautifully.
        I also use this product for my lower back pain during the day and find it most effective.

        Comments about Icy Hot Extra Strength, Medicated Patch, Back & Large Areas, 5 ea:

        I tend toward lower back injuries, so I use this product EVERY TIME that I run, ride a bike, or do exercises that involve twisting and stress on my back. I put one patch on each side. Also, I sometimes get a pain around my shoulder blade, and the patch really helps for that, especially if I'll be taking a long car ride.

          I've been using these for a few days now, and I decided I want to use these every day. However, looking around, the average price on these is $6.49! Come down on price for this, and I'll buy 5 boxes at a time!

                    After tweaking my back yesterday, my son's girlfriend recommended these patches. Normally, my spine would be in a painful "S" curve today but I'm only slightly sore. Wow!!! I will keep these patches on hand from now on--what a godsend!

                      I've been using these IcyHot patches for a while now and they're a life saver! I'm in the military and I'm now deployed. I pulled a muscles in my arm and I can use these patches on my arm while I'm sleeping (I just stick it on then wrap an Ace wrap over it to keep it in place while I'm moving around while sleeping) and I'll be ready to go for the next day. These patches are great for minor back strains as well. I would recommend them to friends and patients!
