Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: I just can't take pain meds. It's worse being sick to your stomach, when your in pain, and when I take it, I feel like I drank 2 pots of coffee. I'm zooming around cleaning and organizing, when I should be resting, because I'm in pain. It lessens the pain just enough , so I can do stuff, when it when wears off, the original pain comes back, and adds on the pain from what I was doing while on it. Grrrr
