central nervous system, changing the way the body feels and reacts
to pain. It may be both psychologically and physically addictive
with long-term use.
Chronic Pain Treatment with Zydol
Outside of medical facilities, this medication is most often used
to treat chronic back pain or pain arising from rheumatoid
arthritis. It may also be sent home with post-surgical patients,
and sees some use in fibromyalgia and restless legs syndrome

health. Very often patients are started on lower doses of 50 or 100
mg, which may be increased if providing insufficient

patients find that long-term use of Zydol results in tolerance to
the drug, in which it gradually becomes less effective. Alternating
between this and another painkiller may slow the process; in
extreme cases an alternative painkiller may need to be found. Speak
with a doctor about options.
If Zydol is no longer needed, dosage strength may be gradually
tapered off to prevent physical withdrawal

I have some issues with pain in my upper back periodically and this seems to help relieve that. I alternate between ibuprofen during day if needed and use the Zydol sometimes at night. I can't comment as to how this drug would be with frequent daily use as I don't use it that frequently but it works for my purpose. Typical dosage for me @ 5'11", 230 lbs is 100 mg (2x50mg tablets). Have not tried it in higher dosages and really doesn't seem to be a need.
