Comment:
I want to warn anyone that takes this drug to be very careful as it is terribly addictive. However, you have to have an addictive personality to become addicted.

Comment:
I have severe lower back pain and muscle spasms. I've had these problems for over 6 years. This medication is the best I've ever taken.
