thanks erica,

i've been trying to pay attention to how i feel throughout the day, throughout the week. i know the side effects of sleepiness, mental fog, dry mouth, wash over me slowly, come to a head, then slowly dissipate, will see if i notice anything regarding pain relief similarly, but probably have to wait another week or so for that to happen if it goes like i've been reading, we'll see.

just so very odd how each nsaid is so very different, both in their effectiveness and side effects.

thanks again, so nice to have all this experience of others to help me along.
