    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.

At 75 mg x 2 per day, it does take the edge off. However, it doesn't stop cronic pain if I've been lifting things. And, it does make me a little dizzy at times and "slow" I think.
