    I initially started this on a as-needed basis for toe pain. It was a miracle drug for that, usually 1 or 2 doses would knock it out. Now, the gout has moved to my ankle, and has been much more difficult to treat. Sometimes the conditions last a week...hobbling around in various amounts of pain before the symptoms cease.

    I have been using this medication for years. AS soon as I feel pain onset in my toe I take a 25mg pill with a meal and often that is all I have to take. Rarely do I take more than one if I catch it on time. I have had no side effects when taken with food.

    Prescribed for gout (ankle). The next day I had Parkinson like symptoms (shaking, uncontrollable muscle movements, etc. Got worse for the next three days, started having stroke-like symptoms, and ended up in the hospital. Took five days for it to wash out of my system and return to normal.

    Seemed to have every side affect listed. Severe headache, dizziness, nausea, etc. Also had the mental side affects, if you will. Heart racing, sweats, MAJOR panic attack, etc. While I do have diagnosed health phobia, agoraphobia, etc still this medicine made those attacks come flying at me. A few times I had my phone in hand to call 911 but was able to get myself to fall asleep to get through ... Show Full Comment
