    This is my 3rd dose pack in a year. The first was for severe bronchitis and coughing in December 2013. The second one was for severe poison ivy in April 2014 and the current (August 2014) is for poison ivy.

The pain was debilitating; I could neither stand nor lay down without literally screaming from the electric shock of pain. I would say this drug is a necessary evil under certain circumstances like this. The side effects are horrible. I'm on day 3 of the 6-day dose pack, and I ... Show Full Comment

    Post operative Rx to decrease swelling etc. I did not sleep the entire time I was on this medication....insomnia to the extreme. By the end of the treatment I felt like a zombie. I will never use this again.....the benefits did not justify being awake 24 hrs a day for days on end.
