I took this for a heel spur for two weeks, along with using a plastic heel support inside my shoe during the same time period. No improvement at all, ended up getting a steroid shot in my heel that cured the pain within 3 days. INTERESTING NOTE: The arthritis pain in my knees was pretty much eliminated during the time I took this medication, so it obviously works for some things.

Prescribed for Plantar fasciitis. The pain is almost gone! Now I can walk without limping and concentrate on non-prescription treatments. My doctor told me to take it after I eat a meal because it will upset my stomach. Was he right! ALWAYS eat something before taking Nalfon.

I have rave reviews for this NSAID. I am a retired RN and took this insted of ibuprofen for all my aches and pain. It's the best of them, but I can't find a company that sells the generic
