    I also posted this on the chit-chat board..
    My nuero. wants me to try this drug by IV use..It is given 2 - 3 x weekly at first..
    I talked to his nurse, she said it works in maybe about 50% if that of people doing it..She also said that some have had side effects (bad)..I'M SCARED TO TRY IT..
    It is usually used for short term use for the gout in oral form..Can only use it short term orally because of it's effects on the stomach, etc..
    I'm am very sensitive to medication and am just scared to give it a try....
    Any imput would be greatly appreciated......
    Thanks..........Donna
