  • Effectiveness
    None (for pain)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Never taken as prescribed
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 5400 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I changed doctors and had hip replacement surgery on my worst hip and then the other hip. NO MORE PAIN. It seems that due to lifelong taking cortisone pills and slathering cortisone cremes for severe allergies/eczema/asthma my body's cartilage was affected. So even tho I have some pain in most of my joints-I know why.
