We do not prescribe here.

First, you need to know why you have back pain.

This needs exam.

If it is a disc problem, correct meds and physical therapy.

If it is muscle pain, correct meds, rest, and maybe physical therapy.

It all depends on exam findings.

Let me know more where you are and I will help you find a doctor.
