Reviews for Zipsor

Nomi · Taken for 2 to 5 years March 6, 2019

“I've been taking Zipsor for hip pain for about 4 years. Yes, it can be rough on the stomach but a daily Prilosec is the remedy for that. Without the Zipsor I have a difficult time functioning normally as the pain can get intense from inflammation. The only trouble I've come across is my doctor reluctant to prescribe long term. I've not found another form of NSAID that works as well and I've tried many! As long as I can get the prescription and insurance will pay I will always use this product. It's a lifesaver!”

“Zipsor is the ONLY med that gives me relief from intense pain in both shoulders due to widespread inflammation. This drug is absolutely amazing.”

“I was in agony for weeks and barely able to walk. Absolutely nothing stopped my sciatica pain, and I tried everything. Within one hour of taking Zipsor the pain was gone. I don't know what's in it, but it literally saved my life. Thank you for your wonderful product.”

“I have been on many pain/anti-inflammatory medications to help with Rheumatoid Arthritis, Plantar Fasciitis and a torn tendon in my shoulder. It is the fastest acting and most effective pain relief I have tried (comparing to Duexis, Hydrocodone, Prednisone, Tramadol). It does not cause stomach upset like other NSAIDS and the only side effect is sleepiness but, a quick nap and pain is much better and no grogginess.”

“This is a fantastic medicine if you suffer from classic migraine with aura. I take it as soon as I feel a migraine coming, and Zipsor stops the migraine in 15 minutes (at the longest 30 mins). It does not leave me in a weird fog like Zomig or Imitrex. Zomig is a wonderful alternative to Triptans.”

“I'm a pitcher and have had bursitis on my upper hamstring for months. It finally gave out and caused a lot of pain where I could barely sit down. My doctor gave me Zipsor and it was 90% better in 1 day. My teammates take a lot of things for pain but I got to say Zipsor has been the best to date.”

“I have had both knees arthroscopic in the last year and half. I ended up reinjurying one knee and when this happened the other knee begins to swell and hurt because it is compensating for the injury knee. I found out I have Pesanserine bursitis, which is very painful especially going up stairs. I was beginning to shuffle from one room to another. I had two Zipsor left from a sample pack I got from the doctor. I try to hang on to them in case my pain got worse. Since my doctors office had not received any samples I ask if they could call in a prescription. I didn't care about the cost. Zipsor has helped the pain and swelling tremendously in my knees. Since I have arthritis in my knees I know this will be my go to as needed pain reliever.”

“I fell and broke the Radial head of my elbow (have never broken anything before and I am 45 yrs old). The doctor put me on Vicodin and it did nothing for that pain, UNTIL he gave me Zipsor, I was much much better in about an hour! The only side effect was that I was a little sleepy.”

“I was prescribed Zipsor for severe sciatica pain - it helped ease the pain some. After 2 days I then broke out in shingles - Zipsor helped this pain much more than the narcotic given to me. I haven't noted any side effects yet.”

“I have dysplasia in both hips at 34. Need a PAO surgery on right hip and hip replacement on left, this has also caused sciatic problems from walking with a limp for so long. I have tried numerous pain medicines and although I did not have any noticeable side effects with the Zipsor, it did no more for me than taking 2 Aleves. Maybe because my pain is bone related with the addition of torn cartilage and nerve problems? Glad that it works so well for some. Anything to get off of narcotic medicines and the crutches pre-op would be nice! So, for me and my dysplasia Zipsor has not been the miracle I was hoping for.”

“I have had severe migraines for 15 years and no medication has been able to give me much relief until I tried Zipsor. My doctor gave me a few samples, to take up to 4 a day (which I assumed I'd be doing when a migraine came along). I took one pill and felt relief within 30 minutes and much better after an hour. I am so glad I have this medicine, it's a miracle!”

“I have plantar fascitis and strained a ligament below the ankle. I was in severe pain and could hardly walk. I'm a Police Officer and need mobility. My foot doctor put me on Zipsor three to four times daily. After the second day on Zipsor I really have felt no pain and no side effects. This medicine is a life saver. It also has me feeling better by giving me more energy.”

“I had a tooth crown that became infected and was causing me tremendous pain. Vicoden and other opiates were of little help. 25mg of Zipsor every 4 hours was my saving grace until I could get the tooth fixed.”

“I have suffered for several years with increasing pain from degenerative disc disease and fibromyalgia, and now I am starting with arthritis. My rheumatologist prescribed Zipsor for me at the end of May, and I felt the difference right away. Six weeks later I am comfortable, and many days pain-free, and I have more energy than I have had since my teens! (I am sixty-one now.) Zipsor has given me back my life.”

“I started on this medication to relieve inflammation for tennis elbow. It has done a decent job on that, but it has done an amazing job in reducing pain from plantar fascitis! I've only been on it for about 3 weeks. I've noticed no side effects.”

“I have been using this drug for a week and it has not worked for me. I have hip and foot pain.”

John Arent July 22, 2009

“This product didn't work for me. The risks did not outweigh the side effects. I used it after my colonoscopy and had to use other pain medicines as well.”
