I feel like this is a high-dose. Is this normal? It is for my lower back pain. It is giving me the worst headache.
Yes and NO. I am taking 40 twice a day for psoratic Arthritis,then after 5 go down to 60 for 3 days, then 20mg for a week, then 10, 3 days and quit. I'll take 6 weeks off and then take the same amount again.
80 is not abnormal in your situation, I've never had any issues, and I've had a heart attack with 3 stents but blood pressure stays normal.
