I took this drug given to me by the ER doctor for sciatica nerve pain in my back and leg it has been 5 days I feel less pain has helped, but medication has made me anxious and not sleepy. I guess all drugs give you some satisfaction with some side affect. I started doing yoga and this has made me feel even better for my pain. Today was my last day of treatment.

Temporal Arteritis plus Polymyalgia later on. For over 5 years now, dose being lessened, then having to be put up again because of blood ESR reading. Now on 2mg per day.
