Advice & Tips: This was an effective medication for my DDD and joint pain. I used it only when I really needed it, and didn't mind that it made me drowsy. I was forced off of it when my doctor told the pharmacy she was no longer my doctor, and my primary doctor refused to prescribe it, since it's a narcotic.

  • Effectiveness
    Major (for pain)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 10 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: It helps me so much to manage my pain, but it getting so hard to find at the pharmacys. We have to drive to 3 or 4 different ones until we find it. It's a shame that when you finally find something to help manage your pain and try to lead a half way normal life, they have to regulate it so much that only certain drug stores have it. That is so sad.
