Husband took the generic of Daypro for about 1 month and was feeling better, no pain in legs, sleeping better and everything, then woke up one morning with severe chest pains and had a widowmaker heart attack and almost died. Was told by Doctor that the drug triggered the heart attack.

Treated for achilles tendonidtis. After trying four other anti-inflamatories and physical therapy over a one year period this one finally worked.

my doctor gave me daypro for hip pain from arthritis and a hip sprain. this crap landed me in the ER with severe stomach pain,bloody stools and bloody vomiting after taking only 4 doses of it. NEVER have I been so sick to my stomach in my whole life!

I don't think anything short or surgery is going to help, but out of all the NSAID s I've taken this seems to be working better than the others without the stomach upset and the constant nausea of the other drugs like Naproxen or Relafen.

It has helped to relieve some pain. However the side effects are a bit worrisome.

I am a 55 year old male and have been taking daypro for almost 10 years. Carpal tunnel sysmtoms are completely stopped with this medicine. I can miss one dose and feel the pain. I've had no side effects that were detrimental to this drug. Has allowed me many hours of pain relief and a more normal day to day living. Arthritis in hands is getting worse now. My doctor is changing me to Mobic. Hopefully it will work as well as daypro.

I know this works for my arthritic pain because I tried to go off of it and I was in severe pain. I am back on my Daypro and I have been taking it for 5 years and I shall continue.
