I was prescribed this medicine for elbow pain and to reduce swelling due to minor gout. It did reduce swelling and the pain was minimized in my elbow and knee(side issue). It did not stop all of the pain but it did reduce the level. After taking this medicine for approximately six (6) weeks, I noticed severe swelling in my right ankle/foot and some in my left ankle/foot. I took the medicine for about two (2) more weeks and it just got worse. I also begin to notice that I was gaining weight. I completely stopped taking the medicine and the swelling started to go down immediately. After about a week my ankles/foot looked normal. I also begin to urinate more frequently and I lost a bloated look that I was beginning to get. After I stopped taking the medicine for the first several days my whole body ached with pain. I have been off the medicine about a week and the pain has subsided. When I go to my Dr. next week we'll see what's next. But no more VIMOVO for me. The swelling and pain in ankles/feet was scary.

It does not help the pain. I had more pain relief with either ibuprofen or aleve.

This medication does not help me with pain at all.

I took vimovo for only 2 days. It did reduce my back, knee, and hip pain. However, during the second day, noticed a redness and sweeling in my lower right leg. I went to my Doctor and he said it was vasculitus and to take only one pill a day rather than twice a day. I said I will stop taking vimovo and rely on aleve which had worked in the past.

Comment from: Bad Now Feels Worse, 45-54 Female on Treatment for less than 1 month (Patient) Published: May 17

Prescribed by nurse-practitioner due to pain (severe burning sensation) in my upper abdominal muscle after a 5 set tennis match and physical contact with another player. For a few days it seemed to help me to rest or sleep and reduced the ab pain; but after about 4 days, I now am having severe muscle cramps in the middle of my back. What's up doc? I don't think Vimovo has helped me.
