Time Taken: 6 years years

Reason: osteoarthritis Date: 1 January 2008
Side Effects
I now have acid reflux problems starting, after 6 years on Arthrotec, 75mgs. twice a day. Have had 4 sugeries, stopping the Arthrotec a week in advance. By day 5 of not taking Arthrotec, I'd have plenty of pain... so I know it 'does the trick'.

Additional Thoughts
I have trouble swallowing it! Arthrotec often gets stuck in my throat and I have a bite to eat near by, plus lots of water.

Side Effects
Dark stool one day - doctor says go to Emergency if this happens again - as it probably means bleeding in the stomach. (I've quit drinking alcohol as a result - another plus!)

Additional Thoughts
Greatly reduces lower back pain.
