This medication is not good for people. Also family members are upset at seeing the person they love live in a somewhat high existence. It may help pain but you lose quality of life.

I have been on this med for quite sometime. Other than the occcasional constipation I had considered many other alternatives including suicide. This med has literally saved my life, I have failed low back surgery and nothing would even touch the pain. Once again I have my family back!!!

Generic is not as effective, it is worth it to spend a little extra for the name brand. Is great for long term chronic pain, and much better then taking the every 3-4 hour drugs. Only side effect for me is a little fog brain.
