  • My Dr. has been deigned by Medicare and it is a hassle every year. Well worth it to get rid of headaches. $150 for 90.00

  • Just be careful and not drink alcohol or take other pain relievers at the same time.

  • This medication has been great for helping with my tension headaches caused by stress. But it is can be easy to build up a tolerance to this medication. I still use it but have to take the max daily dose recommended by the doctor, 4, for it to be effective.

  • It's a great last resort when ibuprophen just isn't kicking the muscle induced headache. Better than muscle relaxers, which knock me out. Using maybe 5 pills in a month for 12 years. Shame the addicts and the health care system are ruining an effective medication for the rest of the population who needs it. If you are educated about the addiction/misuse risks, you won't have any issues. I only take it when everything else- otc pain relievers, heat, ice, stretching fails.

  • Wish I knew about liver disease. I have one kidney and my PCP hasn't done any regular blood tests , I hope my organs are okay ! I've taken 4-5 pills for the past 5 years without any issues. A real great painkiller for neck/headache pain.

  • Saved my life. Thought my head was going to explode, or have an aneurysm. 30 to 40 minutes after taking this I was SO much better.

    Tension headache
  • It will not stay as effective as it is in the beginning & you will always be hoping for the relief you first the first time you used it. It was the ONLY thing that made my excruciating headache completely vanish. Never worked as well as the first time. I went off of it for about 2 years when I got pregnant & I really wanted to stay off of it after the nightmare withdrawal I went through.
