I am 70 year old. I have a stiff shoulder which shots low pain in turning arm in some positions. All other times and on a regular basis there is no pain, no reminder. I have been pxed this drug. I came to the site to see side effects of the drug. I think there are none to bother me as I am not showing signs of those conditions with a contra indication. However, I do not know how my doctor is using this for correction. This may take away pain but the basic malady may need investigation. I will check the status after 4-5 days.
