I've been taking this medication for 4 months,and find that while the pain isn't completely gone, it is bearable.

this works great for me, but I've been have heart palpitations and I am concerned. Is this a common problem?

I have been taking Relafen for about a year now. I have arthritis in my fingers, hip, back, and neck. It has been a great relief. I do take with food twice a day. No side affects that I have noticed. I am very happy with this medication.

Had been given Tramadol to used four times per day. I was miserable could barely lie in bed with back pain extending down my leg ( have spinal stenosis and bulbing discs) also have torn meniscus on right knee that made me miserable because I couldn't straighten it. Started back on Realfen last week, I sleep great, walk great, my hands, knees and back feel great. Wonderful drug

I was prescribed this medication for severe arm, wrist, and elbow pain. After ust a few days, I'm pain free - only feel slight discomfort occaisionally. I'm very happy with the result - started this medicine with a steroid, hope it works without it too.

I have a bulging disc in my lower back and arthritis that flares up in my upper spine and shoulders and neck. My doctor prescribed 2 pills, of 500 mg at bedtime for 3 consecutive nights. It really does help and I like that I don't have to take it daily to get some relief. I wake up feeling much better the next morning. But like any NSID I would not recommend excessive use of alcohol to avoid liver damage.

Worked for first 2 weeks - then nothing. Causes fatigue, dizziness, tightness in chest. Have gone back to Ibuprofen and Turmeric. Disappointed.

I have a old knee injury that causes severe pain - feels like its bleeding inside my knee. This medication worked the first few times I took it, and now it doesn't seem to work at all. Disappointing.
