Reviews for Zorvolex

Georgia · Taken for 1 to 6 months April 26, 2020

“I have severe neck and shoulder pain. I normally take 800 mg of ibuprofen but on days that my pain is so bad that even that doesn't even help I'll take this Zorvolex medication. It works extremely well and allows me to continue with my day. I highly recommend.”

“Using Zorvolex for overall joint pain and it’s a lifesaver. It has completely changed my quality of life. Taking three 35mg per day. For those of you having trouble paying for the med.. I have full coverage PPO insurance. The drug needed preauthorized and would still cost me $150 a month. I contacted the manufacturer and since my insurance doesn’t cover more of the cost, I can get this for free every month at Walgreens. I just have to call for a code. Worth trying if you haven’t!”

“This is an update since my last post. I took Zorvolex for 1 month. Experienced only one side effect - slight increase in blood sugar. But, it's finally under control. I can sit & watch TV. Take a brisk walk around the park. I still err on the cautious side & wear my back brace during any physical activity like grocery shopping, gardening, vacuuming, washing the car, etc. I occasionally have to stop, stretch & rest my back. I'm 63 years old & this is as close to normal as my back is going to get. That my friends, is good enough for me!”

“My doctor prescribed this for inflammation in my lower back area, I have been on it for one week. My shoulder and neck pain is gone almost completely and my back feels a lot better. As of today its been 5 days I have been on this product. The info says it takes two weeks..am hoping it just gets better. Very impressed.”

“I have severe osteoarthritis, and recently my shoulder started hurting so bad I couldn't sleep, as well as my thumb. I am on pain meds for fibromyalgia but was taking 4 Advil at night which didn't help the arthritis at all. By the 2nd day of the (Dr. given) samples of Zorvolex, the shoulder and thumb pain was barely noticeable. Sadly, my insurance won't cover it and I can't afford the almost $500 a month. Hoping to get some help from another resource because this med really works.”

“I have severe neck pain. I normally take 800 mg of ibuprofen. Today, even that didn't get rid of my pain so I decided to take a Zorvolex when it was time for me to dose again instead of taking the ibuprofen. My pain went from a 10 + down to a 3. I highly recommend this medication but would save to take your first dose at night in case it makes you feel drowsy. I am so thankful but I'm finally out of pain after such a long day of feeling bad.”

“I am bone on bone in my knee and was in a lot of pain. Had not been able to walk easily for several months. I felt so much better after taking 2 doses I was shocked. After three days I feel better than I have before I had the surgery that ended up making my knee worse than before. My only complaint is having to take three doses a day and it makes me very sleepy. I've tried prescription aleve and meloxicam and had stomach issues from both and I'm allergic to something in Celebrex. I feel like this medicine is a godsend.”

“I'm diabetic with Scoliosis-extensive degenerative deterioration of lower back L2-L5 and arthritis. Without Zorvolex 35mg 3x a day, I would be experiencing sharp, shooting pain every time I moved. Sneezing and coughing was excruciating! I do wear my back brace all the time for additional back support. I've been taking Zorvolex for over a week. It works very well and I haven't experienced any side effects yet”

Why me? February 3, 2017

“I have been dealing with extreme pain in my hip and groin area. I took one pill but never again. I first experienced drowsiness, which isn't anything to worry about until I started to not feel right in my head. Lasted for about 20 minutes. Then as I was standing in the kitchen making dinner I developed extreme nausea for about 5 minutes. This led to a rush shooting straight to my head and on came a dizzy spell that lasted for about 20 seconds. Followed by a partial black out for a split second, vision came back and I went to sit down moments later I was perfectly ok. Well besides feeling freaked out of course. I would never recommend this medicine to anyone.”

“We'll I have been on this medication for 7 months now. At first it worked well for my pain. Your body has to get used to it . This medication works well for my joint pain in back and knees. It will work for headache also. But these past 2 months I've had terrible side effects. I get these stomach pains from hell. I get sick and throw up. The stomach pain is unbearable . Taking the 18mg. 3xs a day sometimes only able to take 1 a day with food for sure and the stomach pain will come. Also has caused upper respiratory infection 2xs now.”

“I just wanted to give advice to "infomom" on her previous post about insurance not covering it or increasing the copay. If you know that the medication is working well for you then I would first ask your doctors office for samples and keep calling so you can stock up on them. Secondly the nurse at your doctors office should be able to submit a prior authorization form to your insurance. If they still deny it then the nurses can fill out and send in an exception/medically necessary form through the appeals department. If none of those work try using GoodRX or see if the company has patient assistance Good luck to you! I will say Zorvolex has worked tremendously the few times I've taken it.”

“Noticed a big difference with the first dose. Most medicines have made no difference. Anxious to pick up my script for continued use until I have my hip replacement.”

“I have tried Naproxen, Celebrex, Motrin, 800mg Ibuprofen, etc... This was the only one that worked for my back pain. Brought it down from a 8 to a 2. It was good.”

“Only took twice a day for my ankylosing spondylitis . Had little relief if any at all. Vimovo worked much better but after a couple months had horrible GI side effects.”
