Very expensive prescription....but when you check out the ingredients it is actually Aleve along with Nexium which you can substitute a variety of OTC medications which are much less expensive. Overall, I returned to taking Aleve and Previcid. Actually worked better and just as east to take. I just watch the dosage.

I had back surgery almost three years ago. I was on vicodin for a long time. Only by taking vimovo was I able to get away from vicodin. I only take one a day as it has really helped me. If I don't take them my pain comes back.

Dr prescribed this due to my chronic neck pain from bulging discs with inflammation and recommended therapy. After a few days of taking this it has pretty much eliminated my chronic neck pain. My only issue is it bothers my stomach even with the PPI. Been on for 2 weeks but will take a break to see if stomach issues clear up.

My doctor prescribed it to reduce pain from a knee injury until I can see an orthopedic specialist. Took the first one at 7pm with dinner - it's 2:42am - still awake from the pain. Not comfortable taking anything else. Aleve was at least giving me some relief.

I have been taking this Vimovo to treat bursitis in the hip for two weeks now and although it did help somewhat with the pain, I gained weight even though I have been exercising and watching what I eat, I also felt like I was swollen and bloated.

I have been bothered with left upper rib pain for a few months. I just started this med a few days ago. I have taken one pill and have noted a difference. I have just in the last few hours noted the pain is back. So it has been two days since I have taken one and will now take another. It is nice to have relief after months of discomfort.

I noticed that I was becoming more and more agitated. My heart stated racing after being on it 2 weeks. Plus I gain 12 lbs. Stopped before calling doctor. Do not take.

I was prescribed this medication for a shoulder injury w/nerve impingement. It is the only medication that has given me relief and has added some range of motion to the shoulder. It did take a few days to notice relief but now that I've been on it for about a week, I notice a big difference. The only disappointment is that it does not help me to sleep through the pain but does help tremendously to function through the day.
