I don;t know whether I should continue using it as it is a narcotic and for the pain it is creating I don;t know if its worth it... I have taken anti inflamatory which when I get inflamation I have to ... I take torodol and its very hard on the kidneys... so I try to take only as necessary'''in the mean time I started to take emtec 30 for the pain... but as I am asking why it creates more pain than I have ??? snippers
