    I take this and was wondering if anyone gets relive for it. It helps me most of the time but I am concerned about the side affects.

    I started taking this as the brand drug in September 1995. I've take 2g a day and am pretty functional with it. It's the only NSAID that doesn't bother my stomach. My doc checks both my kidney and liver function every 4 months. I have been tolerating this drug well for almost 13 yrs.

    It also tore up my stomach and had to stop it after two weeks.

    I am still trying to repair my stomach damage. I have tried all NSAIDS and it did work the best though for my pain.

    I also was scared of side effects, considering my health is not that good anyway and a very high HSCRP. I certainly don't need any added threats to my heart, etc.

    I didn't know that your kidney and liver needed to be checked on this drug. I will call my reheumy. about this. I do plan on stopping the med. now that I have read the side effects. Now wonder my bp is high and I have edmema. I am scared though of the pain that will be back but don't really know what else to do.

    Thanks for the help.

    I didn't know about the side effects or that blood work should be checked.

    I'm seeing a new rheumy next week after being on the drug since Fall of last year. I'll ask her about all this.

    I don't think I've noticed any help with it. I continue to have pain in joints and the FM pain of course. So I skip it alot because why bother.
