Better results than any other medications. Improved the quality of life tremendously by reducing pain.

I had severe pain in both shoulders for a couple of years and tried everything offered over the counter and some prescriptions that were mind benders to me. After surgery the pain was reduced from a 10 to a 5 which was almost tolerable. Ibuprofen caused constipation and aspirin caused stomach problems. A young female intern at the VA finally prescribed the Etodolac and now I live nearly pain free most of the time. Even the developed back pain that has developed over the years is more tolerable and I can live a normal life with little restraint.

I have had debilitating back pain that has worsened to the point that my quality of life has been horrible. I started taking these and the pain went from a 10 to a 1 after the very first dose. So thankful that my doctor finally prescribed this to me

Lodine (etodolac): I had left shoulder hurt when I was a child. About 20 yrs ago, my DR. gave me samples of Lodine. They worked better then any other NSAID out there. I am going back on it now as the problem is worse.

I started using Etodolac a few weeks ago for back pain (facet joint disease and degeneration of the spine). It has worked very well for me. Pain level is 2-3 when I'm on it, 7-8 when I'm not. It is prescribed at 300mg 3x a day. It reduces the pain considerably for 6-7 hrs. It has been working better than other NSAIDs, with very little side effects. I would recommend it!

Review by bscootermamma:

I was on another medicine for severe arthritic pain for years. Tey recently made put it in Narcotics Class type, so I could no longer get it. My Doctor put me on Etodolac and it works even better than the Tramadol I was on. This is like a Miracle or me.

I'm not having any luck with this medication. I'm glad it's working for others, though.

After suffering with increasing swelling and knee joint pain over the past year, I finally saw a doctor about it. She put me on etodolac. I was skeptical that it would work any better than the ibuprofen I'd been taking, but I'm on my third day and the swelling has already gone down about 50% and I'm not in constant pain. In fact, I enjoyed going to a movie in a theater last night - for the first time in a very long time. I wasn't fidgeting trying to relieve my stiff, aching joints and after sitting still for 2.5 hrs, I got up and walked out without limping. Amazing!

Until now this is the only medicine that has helped with my pain in anyway. It is now livable with little to no pain most days. For more than 5 years I've had pain.

Lodine (etodolac): Lower backache, the doctor said it was arthritis. I have not yet done x-rays but after 2 weeks the pain has competely subsided. So have other joint aches, which I guess I had ignored.

I use this for sciatic and "phantom" pain. Excellent. Not good on an empty stomach and makes my ankles swell a little. So I eat just after taking and relax in the recliner a bit (perfect combo, "for health reasons of course"). Does not make me drowsy like narcotics and works when the narcotics don't.

Lodine (etodolac): It is the only NSAID I can take without setting off my asthma. It kills the pain and allows me to walk. No more choosing between breathing and walking.

I had 4 wisdom teeth removed and it actually took the pain away. I feel a little hazy but completely coherent.
