  • Perceived effectiveness for Pain: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 1600 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I find that if I take the Ibuprofen with the MS Contin, it adds to the pain relieving effect of both drugs. I don't get heartburn a lot, but when I do, usually Maalox or Tums takes care of it. I am also on Prilosec daily as a preventive measure against ulcers.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: Heartburn
