Back Problems board

I have been taking relafen for one week (1000mg daily). I have noticed that I am pretty bloated and have even packed on a few lbs (making my fave jeans too tight!!).

I also notice a glazed over type feeling when I take it. What are your experiences? Has it worked for your pain? Did you gain weight?

I'm on Relafen, 1500 mg/day, and fortunately have been fine. It helps, though on "bad" days it doesn't touch the pain. I've been tried on a lot of different prescription-strength NSAIDs in the past year - Motrin, Cataflam, and Clinoril in addition to the Relafen - and this one seems to have done the best, as well as caused the least amount of GI trouble. But, if you're not feeling quite right on it, you might want to call your doc and ask for a different one. The whole point is to feel more like yourself... good luck!
