Sep 4, 2010 (Started Jun 01, 2009)

  • Effectiveness
    Slight (for breakthrough pain)
  • Side effects
    Moderate (constipation, flatulence)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    A little hard to take
Dosage: 10 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: This dosage is becoming less and less effective as the pain in my hip worsens, which now regularly radiates down my leg from sciatica in my glutes (butt), as well as into my low back, triggering pain in my degenerating disks and bone spurs. Per Mt doc, I. Alspo now take my initial dose at 5mg more than my other doses (taken every 4 hours) to get the med in my system more quickly. And, since I'm taking it more often, day after day, the constipation is awful.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: flatulence, constipation

Dosage: 180 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: This medication helps very well for break through pain, and gives me the ability to control my pain without having a lot of unwanted side effects. It also gives me an increase in energy for some reason, or maybe it is because it takes the pain level down and allows me to achieve my daily tasks pretty much pain free.
