  • Effectiveness
    Major (for pain)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Usually
  • Burden
    A little hard to take
Dosage: 3 x napsylate 650 mg-100 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I can't remember exactly when this was taken off the market; but I know it did a lot to take the edge off my pain without getting into the stronger medications such as Vicodin, etc. which I won't start taking at this point. When my tolerence for pain gets more overwhelming...I'll have to consider something else. I like your site...seeing that others take lesser meds and get good results...I need to study this more :) sounds much better to me!
