I was given this medication for a severe case of poison ivy. I admit I didn't want to take it but did because the rash and itching were driving me crazy. When taken previously, it made my heart race and it gave me the shakes. This time the Dr. advised taking the full dose in the morning with a good breakfast. The dosage was 60 mg decreasing every four days by 20 mg. I had a slight headache by ... Show Full Comment

Went to an allergist who t ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Prescribed this for sciatica/herniated disk pain before surgery since I couldn't take my other anti-inflammatory. I dislike how many pills I'm taking, but I have noticed a decrease in pain. I'm anxious, but that could be due to the upcoming surgery and I already take an anti-anxiety. Other than that, the only side-effect I've noticed (so far) was sweating the first few days.
