I have arthritis in my hip and a bad back (rods and broken fusion) with pinched nerves and 3 bulging disks. My hip doctor gave me this medicine and I was surprised at how well it worked, and quickly too. While it did not take the pain away totally, it is at least manageable now and I feel better.

I took this medicine for 6 months. I used it for severe lower back pain and it worked great until i ended up in the emergency room bleeding from my anus. It was also acconpanied by stomach pain and diareah. On a good note, my back pain was helped greatly.

I have been on this medicine for about 2 weeks, and have regained most of the use of my thumbs. I can now snap my fingers for the first time in 10 years, not as loud perhaps as I did 15 yrs. ago but certainly better! I get through most days without now having to take other pain relievers.

I have knee and back problems. I was prescribed 20mg capsule once daily. I took one and it worked. The problem is I cannot sleep because I feel these little shock / itch points on my body at different intervals. I will never take this medication again.
