Doctor prescribed knowing I was allergic to SULFA medication.....lots of itching within an hour of taking.....also have high blood pressure...2 things that if you have this med should not be prescribed...I guess I need to do my own research....minimal relief of osteoarthritus...not worth it.

This was used after another med didn't seem to be working. After taking this drug for a while, it was just as ineffective as the previous drug.

Have been taking this drug (20 mg/day) for more than 10 years...didn't think it was doing much till I stopped taking it for several days and was nearly unable to walk.
