I have been taking this medicine for two years. It primarily caused a rash on my extremities (arms or legs) and I was told to take allergy medicine with it to prevent the rash. It works wonderfully. I have much more freedom of movement when I take this medicine. Other than the rash, I have not experienced any other side effects.

I started taking this 2 weeks ago per my doctors suggestion. I wanted an NSAID that did NOT make me nauseous and this one fit the bill. However, I have had a sudden/unexplained weight gain of 10 lbs and am suffering from mental confusion - like I am awake but under "fog."
