User Comments about Dolobid
05 Sep 2011 Ever since I used Dolobid my pain has gone away and I can be more active.

16 Oct 2010 I'm 18 years old now with RA. For three years, almost four now it has been a huge problem in my life. I've had naproxen and many other drugs prescribed to me that did not work and by far, dolobid/diflunisal was the worst. I don't recommend that anyone takes this drug unless you have no other option. The side effects are real, painful, and for me, made everything much worse. As of now, I have been off this drug for three weeks and I believe I'm experiencing some withdrawal side effects. I've been to the hospital twice since I've been off it, after taking it for 8 months. Please be careful.
