    Given as replacement for MS Contin for severe chronic pain in knees, lower back, shoulders and neck. Completely uneffective, regardless of straight up the nose or into side of nose. Burning and bad taste unavoidable, imo.

    I have experienced great relief from neuropathic leg pain when my other drugs have stopped working. However, I'm disappointed that I can only use it for 5 days. I don't know what else is out there for pain.

    My first use was almost my last ! The burning sensation, taste, tearing were intolerable. On a whim, I watched the video on how to use the meds on the internet. This is not to be inhaled !!!!! I sprayed it to the side of my nose, and had almost no side effect at all ! I am so happy that I watched that video. The medicine has worked well, and now that I know how to use it, I am a fan.
