  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for Pain)
  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for Fibromyalgia)
  • side effects
    Mild (Lightheadedness)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 100 mg Three times daily
Advice & Tips: Don't wait until you are miserable with pain before taking. If I wait that long I won't get as much benefit and it will take longer to feel it. Even when I take it when I'm only feeling slightly uncomfortable, it can take at least an hour  before I begin to notice the effect.

Feb 15, 2015 (Started Nov 01, 2010)

  • Effectiveness
    Major (for Pain)
  • side effects
    Moderate (Constipation, Constipation)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 200 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Drink a lot of water during the day, and get some exercise to avoid the constipation that comes with this medication. No water = hideous constipation. I've actually been impacted before! I'm taking an obscene amount: 100 mg three times a day. But I don't have to take prednisone at the moment, and it is working well.
Cost: < $25 monthly
