I have backache in my upper back from last month. I use hot water bag at night and massage with iodex. I still feel the stiffness and pain all the time especially when I stretch my back. This happens during winter season. Sometimes in the early morning the pain is unbearable. I met with the chemist and he gave me cip-zox. Can I take this medicine?
