I was prescribed the oral pak for a herniated disk in my lower back. Prior to taking this I had the worst pain - I could barely walk, sit or sleep - it was misery. After taking the first of six doses I had instant relief and just a slight touch of pain in my back. The only side effect has been a mild upset stomach.
