I've taken 20 mg continuously every 6 hours day and night (80 mg/24 hrs) for several years for bad osteoarthritis pain. Because of side effects experienced, I just committed to 15 mg (60 mg/24 hrs) after trying this dosage for several weeks, with an expected and actual increase in pain when doing household tasks. I lost most of my hearing while taking 80 mg so long, which is a potential side e ... Show Full Comment

After enduring over 2 years of terrible nonstop (spine,neck, hip) pain, i sought medical help.

Starting taking after spine fusion surgery. It saved my sanity. Very effective in reducing pain; however doctor would only prescribe 4 per day and I truly need 6 after taking them for 6yrs. I just suffer with the pain at days end. Everyone is afraid we will become drug addicts instead of listening to the patient and their true pain needs.

Comment:
I was prescribed this after I had my tooth pulled. It left me extremely dizzy, drowsy, nauseated, sluggish, and irritable. I called my dentist to see if I could stop taking, and she said that I had taken it long enough for it to be effective. After just one night of not taking it, I felt better. I would not recommend this drug at all. I drank enough water and etc., and I still felt horrible.

Comment:
I got my wisdom teeth pulled and was prescribed this medication for pain. It has overall helped tremendously, however; the side effects are very uncomfortable. I feel nauseous and dizzy when taking it. I also became very frustrated and irritated easily.
