Comment from: sore hip, 45-54 Female on Treatment for 1-6 months (Patient) Published: May 26

For hip arthritis. MAGIC! Without it, I can barely walk. With it I almost forget. 50mg @ 3/day. Mild stomach upset, far outweighed by being able to function. I highly recommend trying this. Try 1/day, if needed, 2 spaced morning and evening. I ended up needing 1 every 8 hours, but it WORKS.

I tried so many different types of pain relief before I discovered Cataflam. I've been using them when required for the last 6 years. They give me so much relief when my condition worsens. I never leave home without them. My quality of life is much better on account of Cataflam.

I have a very bad toothache and I was prescribed to take the cataflam 50mg with ibuprofen. However, it has been an hr and my pain has not completely stop. I thought that if I took both, I would get instant relief but that hasn't occurred yet. I decided to do the alcohol swab treatment on the area where the tooth is aching until I can get in to see my dentist to have my root canal.

Comment from: Cynicki, 35-44 on Treatment for 6 months - 1 year (Patient) Published: October 10

800mg of ibuprofen is no longer effective in controlling the pain of my menstrual cramps so my doctor put me on a combination of 50mg of Cataflam and 50mg of Tramadol and it works great. The only downside is the inconvenience of having to take the Cataflam every 8 hrs and the Tramadol every 5 hrs for about 4 to 5 days every month. So I have to set alarms on my phone to remind me because if you don't stay ahead of the pain, you'll regret it. But it is worth waking up in the middle of the night if needed to take my meds if it means I won't be in pain.

Comment from: 65-74 on Treatment for 1-6 months (Patient) Published: March 24

I was given the prescription for Osteoporosis, and a damaged spine and back. My problem is that it seems to wear off quickly, and I am only prescribed 1 two times a day. I have not figured out how to space them correctly. I am not sure if it is working, as I still have pain most of the time.
