I was given this med in conjunction with a 5 day course of antibiotics for pleurisy. The same dose for the 5 days.

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.

Comment:
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.
