    I got this very expensive pills for joint/tendon pain. Dr's aren't sure whats wrong yet. I felt they worked no better than ibuprofen. I had no side effects, and they did help the pain a bit, but, they take a few hours to even feel some pain relief. For the price, I dont think they are worth it. ibuprofin kicks in faster and works just as well.

    Injured my lower back playing basketball. MRIs showed no disc damage but nerve tests confirmed the problem. Serious pain in my lower back and all the way down my leg. Took many months to get over and etodolac was pretty much the best of many meds I tried. Muscle relaxers did next to nothing. Tramadol not much either. This drug allowed me to get back to work.

    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!
