 3  arthritis nausea, heartburn, nosebleed It was helping me despite the very low dose, but after a week the nausea became worse and I had to discontinue. I am sensitive to medication; it may help others. F 58 7 days

 3  Rotator cuff injury This drug appears to have raised my pulse rate, both resting, and while exercising. It's usually around 75 while at rest, but it's more like 95 now. Also, my max heart rate while doing aerobic exercise has increased by approx. 10 bpm (175 vs. 165. Also, (I hope this isn't too much information!)my stool is turning yellow, which concerns me about my liver function. Yes, the pills are yellow, but they seem very small to be having that effect. If I end up having to take this medication for more than a month, I will ask for a liver function blood test. I was diagnosed via MRI with a full thickness rotator cuff tear (no surgery yet, but the probability is likely). Although this medication did offer relief to the acute pain after my injury, I am very concerned by the warnings that come with this drug. The following are quotes from an information pamphlet given to me by the prescribing Dr.: 1. The risk of Serious and sometimes fatal heart problems, heart attack and stroke may be increased with use of this medicine. 2. Risk of serious and sometimes fatal stomach and bowel problems (bleeding and holes in the stomach/bowel)is increased while using this medicine. M 56 21 days

 4  osteoarthritis none It's a lifesaver for me. I have jaw, knee, and hand pain, and for me it's the difference between feeling like the tinman without oil vs. the tinman with oil. I worry what it's doing to my liver - I don't like being dependent on medication - but the help it gives me overrides the concern. F 54 7 years
 4  arthritis None however my doctor said I needed to stop because of my Lap Band, which is a weight loss device. He said this medicine would cause errosion to my band and stomach. While taking this medicine I still had arthritis aches and pains but when I stopped taking it, my back got so stiff that I could not bend until about 4 hours after waking and then again late in the day it would get stiff again. These are typical arthritis signs. I didn't notice how well the drug worked until I had to get off of it. Was off a week before stiffness came about, was off another 5 days and I HAVE to go back. OTC meds do not work the same. F 52 1 years
 3  Rheumatoid arhtritis worked for the first month and quickly lost it's effectiveness F 31 2 months
