I started taking this 5 years ago for the pain from my period so that I could still go to work and function. I have since gone through menopause and now use it for arthritis in my hands. My problem is, the insurance I now have doesn't cover it. So if I want to continue it, I can pay $619 for a 30 day supply!!

Comment:
I was taking Diclofenac Potassium before, with absolutely no effect. If anything, my cramps became worse. I also had to be careful to eat when I took the pills. Meclofenate Sodium, on the other hand, gave me immediate, long-lasting relief, without needing to be careful and eat when I took the medication. I am so satisfied with this medication, and definitely recommend it.

Comment:
I'm too scared to take this medication. I've read all there is to read about it and it still does not ease my anxiety about it. I still suffer painful and heavy periods, have been for about 8 years now. I desire relief but I can't get over my fear of this medication. I'm stuck between fear and a pill bottle. I really don't know what to do. I have discussed having a hysterectomy ... Show Full Comment
