After taking every 12 hours for 2 days, I have finally woken up pain free! As background, for the past two weeks, i have been ridden with intense neck, shoulder, and cervical spine pain--especially bad when I first wake up.

My husband has been taking this medication just for a few days but since he has started he has been having awful mood swings! SO irritable. Laughing one minute and then yelling the next. Anyone else experience this?

Was in a car accident a month ago. Nothign was helping the pain in my back. My doctor prescribed this medication to me. I work in an office sitting all day and this medication did manage my pain. A week after taking the medication, the side affects hit! My ankles and feet swelled horribly! I was told to staop taking it immediately. It's has been at least 5 days since taking the last dosage and my feet are still puffy and I am not able to wear anything other than flip flops. It worked great for pain management but the side affects really suck!

My ortho doctor prescribed Lodine after my initial meniscus tear surgery for pain and swelling. I never realized how much good it was doing until I switched insurances and it is no longer covered for me. I quit taking it when I ran out... the last week or two has been so miserable I just paid full price for it. Hoping I get back to normal soon. No side effects but I take as directed with food.

Comment from: kguns44dd 35-44 Female less than 1 month Patient Published: April 24

I am highly allergic to Lodine. I was given Lodine 300mg (every 4-6 hours) in 2002 following foot surgery. I shattered my support bone in my right foot and had to have it surgically removed. After the 2nd dose, I began to notice bruising on my upper thighs. The next day, my arms, back, and calves had the same bruises. I didn't know what was causing it. The 2nd day, the bruises were covering about 80% of my body, so I went to the Emergency Room. After running some tests, the Doctor told me the Lodine was causing bleeding under my skin, so the nurses flushed it out of my system, and put me on a Benedryl IV.

I've taken etodolac mostly continuously for nearly 2 years for chronic osteo and rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia pain. It is one of the few commonly prescribed NSAIDS that doesn't give me palpitations. I find it effective, used in combination with cymbalta, for most of the time.

I've been taking lodine now for approx. 4 weeks and it has worked wonderfully to help alleviate my pain from severe osteoarthritis of the hip with trochanteric bursitis. I was previously on ibuprofen 800 mg. every 8 hours. This works much better, however I do make sure that I eat with the medicine and drink plenty of water when I take it. We'll see how the long term outcome is.
