I have been taking this medicine for only 2 weeks. I usually have extreme pain in my lower back - hip area and wallpaper & paint for a living. Since starting this medication I no longer experience any pain at all. So far, no side effects, I'm keeping my fingers crossed

I started taking Dolobid a week ago and I can't not believe the results. I have had three lower back surgeries and one to my neck. The pain was so bad that I couldn't stand up right. I have tried alot of different meds and have not had the good results that I have had with Dolobid. I just hope it keeps working.

I have tried a lot of NSAIDs. Aspirin seems to work best for me but doesn't last long enough. Next to Voltaren, this works best. I like that it starts to work, much like aspirin, right away. Some of the other NSAIDS take days to feel some relief. This starts to work when I overdo it, much like aspirin and gets a little more effective over the days I take it.

Long term/full seasonal use of Dolobid has no reports of side effects. Fioricet in combination w/ Fexofenadine Hcl works well for migraine due to CBV during seasonal allergy since 1995. During a whole year visit in Philippines where Fioricet is unavailable, Diflunisal 500 mg works well but not as a seasonal only solution.

Very harsh on my stomach, even when taken with food and milk. No more effective than OTC Ibuprofen.
