Once worn off, it will have no effect on your exercise. (you can exercise with the med too and safely, but it might "slow you down" just a little.) ...Read more

Strengthen your core: Experiencing some back pain after starting a new exercise program is not unusual--especially after a period of relative inactivity. First give your back a few days rest before trying to resume your exercise program. You can try an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory such as Motrin or advil (ibuprofen).
