    A little hard to take
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: The idea behind pain medication is not to completely get rid of the pain, it just takes it down to a tolerable level. That's a common misconception, that it should get rid of all of the pain. It doesn't happen. You eventually build up a tolerance to it. It can be highly addictive. I worry about that.
