It no longer helped with the pain so I discussed it with my physician and it was decided that I could come off this meedication. The "withdrawal" is the most difficult thing I have ever been through. The issues with stopping this medication were not mentioned in any of the literature I read before agreeing to take it in the first place. This is my third tim... View full comment
