  • Perceived effectiveness for anti inflammatory: Major
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Sometimes
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: Originally prescribed by a foot doctor for Planter Faschi. He also recommended Superfeet hard insoles and recommended against daily use of this antiinflammatory. After a job change to a more physically strenuous job I started taking it more often, then daily, for lower back and shoulder pain. I noticed blood coming from my rear end so I do not take it at all now. I do take Advil some and increased my Chiropractic adjustments to every weeks.
Cost: $25-49 monthly

  • Perceived effectiveness for anti inflammatory: Major
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Somewhat
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: I got this from a Podiatrist for Planter Faschi, along with some hard arch supports. He said not to take it forever, as I have enough stuff going through my liver, but I still have some left over and it helps unusual pains from unusual strains.
Cost: $25-49 monthly

  • Perceived effectiveness for Tendinitis: Slight
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Somewhat
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: I haven't had any nausea with the gel. I honestly don't Remember if I ever took an oral form of this. I will have to go back & look at my records. The difficulty i have using it is because i can't always reach the areas that need it, you need to make sure you rub it in well & it's dry before putting socks on & it flakes off a bit when your rubbing it in. I haven't found it that effective for the pain, but does reduce some swelling caused by inflammation. I prefer compound creams and lidocaine patches. It sometimes makes that area of my skin softer,which is definitely a plus :)
Cost: < $25 monthly
