Comment:
I have been bothered by pain in knees and thumbs for a few yrs. As a 62 yr. old carpenter it made working pretty difficult at times. After taking the first pill the pain decreased by at least 90%. I was prescribed 1 15mg dose daily ,but found that if I only take one when needed, usually only every 2nd or 3rd day, I feel like a I did when I was 50. Back to my 40 hour week.

since starting this medication I have been experiencing flu-like symptoms..headache and nausea. I am not sure I can persevere to see if the side affects wear off.

I felt better within one day and don't need cane any longer. I did have stomach pains for a few days.....but not after that. I take it in the evening, sleep so much better and walk almost normal again. So glad my doc prescribed this medication and hope it keeps the pain under control until I have surgery and no longer need it!
