Generally a NSAiD: Usually an nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication like Naproxen or ibuprophen will help as long as you have no allergies to this class of medication and are not on any blood thinners. A history of an ulcer , gastritis or reflux ( heartburn) may also limit your use of these medications. Check with your doctor if this may be a concern.

Lower back pain.: cannot say in your particular case, but generally, this condition that literally affects everyone is treated with rest, aspirin like drugs, heating pads to begin with and excersize and physical therapy otherwise.

Confused: Your profile says you are a male, but if you say you are not having periods, i'm thinking you must be female. It is common/normal to not have periods while on Depo-Provera (i am assuming you mean depo-provera). Your back pain is probably not related.
