Four days of 2 tabs/daily put my 86-year-old mother in the hospital for a week with delirium. Not sure of her pain; she is too confused to be able to tell us. Warnings should include this chance in elderly patients. Prescribed by an urgent care physician who should have known better.

My doctor gave me this to try for my neck pain instead of Flexeril because those were too sedating. The T3's did relieve my neck pain but I found myself feeling depressed (I don't have depression) and very agitated. Based on the way these effected me psychiatrically, I won't be taking them again.

Comment:
I had a molar surgically removed. I had never taken T3's before, so I started with one. It didn't do much for the pain, so I took another. After waiting five hours for it to kick in I was in excruciating pain, so I took two more. This time the pain went away and I felt a lot better.
