i am 16 years old and have such a sever case of arthritis everywhere in my entire body that it gets to the point that i can not move.

I also got headaches sometimes. other than that it has been my life saver! =]

Caution: take on a very short term basis due to the side effects. You may not have them now but believe me they will probably appear eventually or when you start to taper off this drug.
