Currently taking about a week's worth doseage that decreases every two days. I was prescribed the drug to help reduce the swelling of my throat due to mono. After taking the first dosage, I could swallow and eat solid food within the hour. It had been five days since I could eat without crying. So far, I haven't had any real bad side effects.

I have never felt so much like a zombie. I am taking this for arthritis in my back. It has kept me out of work for 3 weeks. I am hungry and tired, but can't sleep. It eased the pain for awhile, but not completely. I am going to try and never take again.

I've only been taking this for 2 days and have the worst headache I have ever had. Nothing helps the pain. I'm taking it for a persistent sinus and ear infection. I think the pain from the ear infection and sinus infection is better than this headache.

Comment:
I took this drug given to me by the ER doctor for sciatica nerve pain in my back and leg it has been 5 days I feel less pain has helped, but medication has made me anxious and not sleepy. I guess all drugs give you some satisfaction with some side affect. I started doing yoga and this has made me feel even better for my pain. Today was my last day of treatment.
