I had extreme hip pain for years! Tried aspirin and Ibuprofen; helped in short term. Getting to the point where I could barely walk. Etodolac was a miracle. Took for 2 weeks straight four months ago and have not had to take again -yet. Relieved 95% of the pain. No bad side effects for me. Thank you, Doctor!

Comment:
I have taken this off and on when I have had lower back pain. It has always worked very well for me as far as getting rid of any pain and especially for inflammation. It usually only takes about 2 pills and 24 hrs to work and I feel as good as new. Have never experienced any bad side effects over the past 2 years, maybe because I have never had to take more than 2 days worth of the medication.
