I think what is confusing is it looks like most of the information is cut/pasted from a website that explains in detail what the medicine is and how it works...and then SS adds in a few statements about
how it may be beneficial to some..
I agree that it's best to work with our Dr.s since we all have different types of pain and pain generators, that require certain medicine to help us.
It's always interesting to read about
all the varying medicines out there to help with pain..That is a great thing since sometimes people have allergic reactions or side effects too great to continue something, so it's good to have other choices to help alleviate our pain..
So SS...maybe you can discuss this with your DR. at your next appt. to see if it's something they would think might be useful to help with your pain..
Keep us posted..
