My doc gave me this NSAID yesterday, said it made pain meds 40% more effective. Of course, I'm still bruised from the trigger points so I haven't noticed yet.

Anyone have any experience with this medication?



  • Basically a fancy name for Aleve controlled release, I love how doctors do this.Tell how great a med is and its a souped up OTC.

    Worth a shot, had a miserable day, sorry for my tone.

    I take aleve daily w/ my norco and 40% would be very welcome, but I barely notice much other than stomach problems.
  • Hon, your tone is fine! With the shots I've felt like crud today too, so here's a gentle hug for ya! >:D<

    Thanks for the info...My meds have seemed more effective, I'm just not sure that it's going to stop me from needing him to increase my percocet from 3x's a day to 4xs a day. But I'll take the extra relief with all the fronts passing through, that's for sure! IT ACTUALLY SNOWED IN LOUISIANA LAST NIGHT!

  • We are supposed to get some here in Oregon this weekend and boy the pain is building.

    Hugs back to you!!!
  • I took Napralene(Naproxen) for 10 months then I wanted to try celebrex because I heard that many people here were using it so my Dr. switched me over. It's the same, an anti inflammatory. I was hoping to get more pain relief but I'm still the same as when taking Napralene. I hope you have some results after your injections today, sometimes it takes a few days to work. Take care.
