  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for breakthrough pain)
  • Side effects
    Severe
  • Adherence
    Usually
  • Burden
    A little hard to take
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: Works so-so for pain, but must take (2) 50 mg tablets to feel any benefit. The side effects are constipation and major dizziness, both of which are fairly severe. I would estimate only having to take (2) tablets for pain an average of maybe 5 times per month.
