    I had a allergic reaction to a wasp sting and was given a 10 day supply. I will not take this again due to the scary side effects. My heart raced constantly, couldn't sleep over 2 hours at night, severe sweating, could not stop eating, dizziness, ect. please be very careful if your doctor precribes this to you.

    Took for tendonitis/inflamation in foot. It eased the pain but not entirely. Able to walk now without limp. Did cause some constipation and troubled sleep nights. I would definitely take again.
