Has anyone taken this drug? I've been researching treatments for pleurisy and this was recommended on one website I found (http://http://www.aafp.org/afp/2007/0501/p1357.html if anyone's interested). Just wondering about other's experiences with it. Right now all I have for pain is ibuprofen and Vicodin, and for some reason Vicodin hardly touches the pleuritic pain (it does help me with joint pain).

Hi Kathryn. When i first got diagnose with pericarditis and plueurisy that was the first medication I was prescribed. Even though my doctor kept increasing my dose it didnt do anything for me to relieve symptoms. It made me feel really dizzy after I would take it so I didnt like that side effect either. But it must help lots of people because it is prescribed for that purpose. I think it would be worth a try to ask your doctor about it since what you are taking right now doesnt seem to be helping. Good thoughts for you today that you will get the help you need.
