Did you find that it helped with your pain right away? I might have been on too low of a dose but I really did not get very much benefit from it and I was on it for 2 weeks.
I felt terrable for three days after I stopped taking it, even thought I went back to vicodin. It was the fist LA med that I tryed.
My doc told me to stop taking it if I was not getting relief and it was causing me to be sick to my tummy. She said we would try something else when I see her in 2 weeks.
I have to say, I am a bit scared of the LA meds, I was on 15 mgs 2x a day for 2 weeks and had withdrawl symptoms when I stopped. I was supreised because I thought it woiuld take a bit longer then that to become dependant. It also could have been that I was in a very pain pain flair when I stopped taking it.
I hope it works out for you.
