This medication gave me ease of pain within a few days. I was able to exercise the joint after that and build muscle to help control the movement of the joint. It was a god send. I had no ill effects from the drug.

It works wonderfully for my arthritis and I feel really good after taking it. Most of the pain is gone. So far I have had no real side effects.

I use this for Chronic Hip Bursitis. I've tried several other anti-inflammatory drugs, and this keeps me pain free, and feeling "normal". There have been a few times, I've forgotten to take it. I'm reminded that same day with pain and limping. The only thing I don't like are the bruises that pop up for no reason. Right now, I have 5 on one arm, 2 on the other, and at least 8 between both legs. They're no larger than a half dollar, but I look like an abused woman. I need to let my Dr. know, but I'm afraid he'll take it away!

I have fibromyalgia and arthritis. This drug in brand name form was successful in eliminating my pain and physical limitations. The generic form did not and I found it very disappointing.

This med doesn't touch my pain. I have fibromyalgia and a bad disc in my back and this is no more effective than a baby aspirin and it makes me sick to my stomach. Considering the side effects and it's uselessness I stopped taking it. [my dr. knows.]

I was takng this medication for severe arthritis and inflamation, it didn't help with the pain but after 2 months I put on over 10lbs, became extremely fatigued,itchy all over,loss hearing for 3 weeks,I stopped meds and questioned my Dr. and he said couldn't have been from the meds,fatigue hearing and itching improved after stopping so I don't know what to say, watch for odd side effects, may be alergic reaction and not side effect.

Wow, at least with the pain meds I've gotten sick with, the hit was a quick on and the natural stomach process turned it right on out and I was able to go on. I took this relafen and about 2 hours later it hit and stayed with me 2 days plus. I have not been so sick from a medication, you talk about an enduring sickness too. As you can probably see, I had no benefit what-the-so-ever from this med and would not recommend it's use on any mammal past or present.

I have osteoarthritis and this medication has helped me so much. I am in so much pain when I miss a dose.

Comment from: SAnne, 45-54 on Treatment for 5-10 years (Patient) Published: October 01

I have fibromyalgia and all I can say is THANK GOD for this medication! It gradually decreased the pain until I felt I could make it without taking the medication any longer. After I stopped taking it is when I realized just HOW much it had helped me. I'll never miss another dose again.
