My Doctor gave me a sample of this to try for fibromyalgia pain in my shoulders.It is a little messy to apply,but so far has been working well for the pain.I do not use it daily-only occasionally at night when the pain keeps me from getting comfortable enough to sleep.

Three drops and that is the first time that my ankle hasn't hurt since I broke it in 1991.

I know this is for knees, but my dr. gave it to me to soothe pain in my toes. So far so good, 2 drops at a time once a day seems to work.

Comment from: crockerpa, 55-64 on Treatment for 1-6 months (Patient) Published: November 27

MY DOCTOR GAVE ME A SAMPLE OF PENNSAID TO TRY BEFORE I HAD THE PERSCRIPTION FILLED TO SEE IF IT HELPED MY PROBLEM. I USED A FEW DROPS ON BACK OF MY NECK, SHOULDERS AND MY HANDS FOR OSTEOARTHRITIS. I USE IT ONCE A DAY JUST BEFORE I GO TO WORK AND IT STOPS THE PAIN COMPLETELY. SO FAR I HAVE NOT HAD ANY SIDE EFFECTS FROM IT. BEFORE I WAS TAKING MOLTRIN BY THE HANDFULS AND STILL HURTING AFTER A COUPLE OF HOURS. MY STOMACH WAS GIVING ME PROBLEMS FROM TAKING SO MUCH MEDICATION BY MOUTH, AND NOW IT DOESN'T BOTHER ME ANYMORE SINCE I STARTED USING PENNSAID.I AM SO GLAD I HAVE THIS MEDICATION TO USE AND IT WORKS 100%

i had kneereplacement in 2009 and after about one year doing well, i started having severe pain. my dr. gave me a sample of pennsaid, it seems to work a little bit, but i am afraid of the sideeffects and will probably not use it anymore.

Comment from: PATTI, 65-74 on Treatment for 1-6 months (Patient) Published: November 29

I have a lot of arthritic/joint pain problems. I have tried everything,including Celebrex but i stopped as i am on heart meds (blood thinnner and a diuretic). I have tried lots of topicals. all including Voltaren and Counterpain provided v. little relief, useless.I get Pennsaid from a Canadian friend. This is giving me the best relief from pain. It is recommended for knee pain but I use it on knees, knuckles/fingers and ankles as well. Works on all.
