ZORVOLEX: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Pain “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.”

For Osteoarthritis “I took this medication for Osteoarthritis, and it helped so much. Surprisingly, it nearly stopped my chronic migraines too. The best thing about Zorvolex is that I do not get the ear ringing that other NSAIDs or the regular dose of generic diclofenac cause. The only down side is that I turned 65, and Medicare Part D doesn’t cover it. I was able to get an exception for one year, but what they paid was minimal. Before 65, I only paid $50 a month. It tripled. I just couldn’t afford it anymore, so I’ve stopped taking it. My ears are ringing again. I hope there will be an affordable generic soon.”

For Pain “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.”

For Pain “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.”

For Pain “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.”

For Pain “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!”
