Comment:
After back and nerve pain for two years, I tried every therapy (chiropractic, physical therapy, injections, painkillers). Nothing else worked.

I do retain water and have gained a little weight. It also makes me somewhat forgetful but it is the only drug that manages my pain. I cannot take most pain killers because of my sensativity to them.
