Hi, I am 43 years old. I am having lower back pain from last 10 years. This pain appears in ever 3/4 months and after taking painkiller and 2/3 days rest it goes away. It has restricted me doing any heavy work. But this time it is not working the pain is still there since one month and everyday. The pain is more when it is very cold and reaches to its maximum when I get up in the morning. But slowly reduces during day time. I went to a doctor and he prescribed a HLAB27 test. It has come positive in the report. He suggested Saaz-ds tablet once a day for 15 days. My question, does this tablet has any side effects. And If I feel better after some days, can I continue this for long time. If I look at the long term, does this tablet actually cures it or it only reduces the pain?
