FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: PENNSAID

User Comments:


For Osteoarthritis “My opinion of this topical medicine is far different than everyone else’s. I’ve been using it for a torn meniscus regularly for two months and I see absolutely no difference. I might as will be putting body butter on my knee. I’m very tuned into medicines, every little side effect and whether it works or doesn’t and this stuff is phony baloney.”

For Osteoarthritis “I have osteoarthritis in my right knee, and I run. I also get IT band pain. So sometimes, I am so stiff and achy either from running, or just because. I get super stiff behind my knee, and it makes it hard to even walk, or straighten my leg all the way. I take ibuprofen, I ice it…and that helps some. I woke up this morning with it being extremely stiff behind my knee. I applied Pennsaid all over the back and front of my knee. No kidding – within 5 minutes, most of that stiffness is GONE. I am in shock. And if you have knee pain, you know how debilitating it can feel. This stuff is INSANE – in a good way!! I’m so glad I have it. I literally can’t believe how much it helped me. And no, I don’t work for a pharmaceutical company.”

For Osteoarthritis “Many here are saying that the price is about 2K. I don’t know if every state has this but it has changed my life. Target near me sells it for $98.00Pennsaid has helped my bad knees. I would not say it took all of my pain away but it helped lower it. I like that it glides on the skin. i like that you can re apply.”

For Osteoarthritis “I’m allergic to Ibuprofen, Aspirin, and Naproxen. My doctor knew this. He insisted that this stuff would be fine on me. He put a dab on my hand and said that since there wasn’t a rash I was fine. I put it in the places he told me to and the. I got very very very sick. Lethargic almost. It was awful. Major major major stomach cramps and pain. My throat started to close up. It was awful. Do not take this if you are allergic to Ibuprofen. You’ll regret it. Some doctors truly are idiots.”

For Osteoarthritis “I an 53 and have OA under my kneecaps due to patellafemoral syndrome and poor kneecap tracking. No swelling but lots of pain. Can’t take oral NSAIDs due to stomach issues. Unfortunately, despite applying this three times a day for weeks there was no improvement in pain.”
