This medication was prescribed to me for pain management. After three days on the medication I had severe seizures. 8 months after quiting the medication I am still having severe seizures and can no longer work or care for my 3 children. Use extreme caution and very low doses. Think this medication through before use. Talk it over with your doctor and family seriously before begining use.
