I've never taken it but my sister does and she loves it. She doesn't have to take anything else, such as advil, aleve etc. to compensate for what the arthrotec may not help. I'm going to ask my rheumy about
it next time. I'm told it's pretty hard on your tummy but that it will lessen the longer you take it and that you should eat something with it if you're having problems. Lucky me, I have a stomach of iron and can take almost anything without it bothering me. Good luck!
