Had signs similar to tonsillitis. This seriously did the trick in about 15min. Dr was shocked that I walked around with such a swollen throat for so long.

Have chronic back pain, which intensifies after going to the gym and getting muscle soreness - in S. Africa where I currently live this medicine is sold over the counter and for me works perfectly and better than other more powerful medicine as it acts fast and does not give me drowsiness or effects my mental state....

Prescribed to ease endometriosis symptoms. I took the first pill and had a reasonable amount of relief. Took the second pill about 6 hours later and had awful nausea. Not sure if the pain relief was worth the upset stomach.

There should be a clearly visible date on the main text of the article. Readers must know if what they are reading is from this week or last year. I have stopped prescribing Cataflam because of the risk of heart attack.

I'm not sure how much it helps because I use tramadol for pain.

I tried so many different types of pain relief before I discovered Cataflam. I've been using them when required for the last 6 years. They give me so much relief when my condition worsens. I never leave home without them. My quality of life is much better on account of Cataflam.

I have a very bad toothache and I was prescribed to take the cataflam 50mg with ibuprofen. However, it has been an hr and my pain has not completely stop. I thought that if I took both, I would get instant relief but that hasn't occurred yet. I decided to do the alcohol swab treatment on the area where the tooth is aching until I can get in to see my dentist to have my root canal.

800mg of ibuprofen is no longer effective in controlling the pain of my menstrual cramps so my doctor put me on a combination of 50mg of Cataflam and 50mg of Tramadol and it works great. The only downside is the inconvenience of having to take the Cataflam every 8 hrs and the Tramadol every 5 hrs for about 4 to 5 days every month. So I have to set alarms on my phone to remind me because if you don't stay ahead of the pain, you'll regret it. But it is worth waking up in the middle of the night if needed to take my meds if it means I won't be in pain.

The Medication was prescribed for pain. Ordered to be taken three times per day.On day two I developed severe GI discomfort with lower abdominal pain and weakness.I discontinued taking the medication and treated my symptoms with Maalox. After reading the side effects I think this medication should be taken off the market, as the bad outweights the effectiveness.
