 1  For a fractured sternum, arthritis, Nausea, ringing ears, strange taste in mouth, diarrhea, dehydration, insomnia, worsening pain in chest, acid reflux. This is a horrible medicine. Aleve worked way better with no side effects. M 51 3 days
400 3X D
 5  Neck and Back inflamation None It is great nerve pain relief. F 53 3 days
400mg 2X D
 2  Back pain Read the side effects and I feel it is not worth it. I have high blood pressure and high cholesterol and 60 and I don't feel my doctor took that into effect. Side effects are too scary for me to take Etodolac. I will just use otc medications with less side effects. Why would our government pass a drug like this is beyond me. F 60 1 days
 3  back injury from fall off a ladder very sleepy; viscious heartburn unless taken DURING a meal and pain does not subside depending on time of day I take it Pharmacist told me to take one with breakfast and one with dinner. If I forgot the one at breakfast I took only one that day with lunch - pain did not subside. I have healed enough after 30ndays now to take one a day with dinner. I do not like this drug in the am because it makes me so sleepy and rather loopy - not alert. This drug gave me the worst heartburn unless I took it with a meal like this: eat a little - take the pill - finish the meal. Also I needed to drink two full glasses of water it order not to feel dehydrated because I am also on two other meds. Mostly though I was disappointed with the pain relieving value of this drug: even when I took it as directed the first week I was still in pain. The pharmacist told me to give it at least five days of strict adherence to dosing at regular times. I got more relief from this drug after 5 days than I did from an OTC one like Aleve. But I don't know what it would have been like had I taken Aleve regularly for 5 days. Just not real happy with this drug's effectiveness initially. F 56 1 months
400mg 2X D
 4  Pain used at a anti inflammatory Mild headache. Drowsiness even in the daytime. seems to be working M 34 6 days

ETODOLAC  (ETODOLAC):  Etodolac is used to relieve pain from various conditions. It also reduces pain, swelling, and joint stiffness from arthritis. This medication is known as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). It works by blocking your body's production of certain natural substances that cause inflammation. If you are treating a chronic condition such as arthritis, ask your doctor about non-drug treatments and/or using other medications to treat your pain.
