SanaaJan 31, 2016Pirox Gel for pain killer
I have been taking this medication for pain in my foot. My Dr. gave it to me for planters faciitis. I was in such pain that I could barely walk when getting out of bed or standing after sitting for a while. One pill lasts for 24 hours, and works great. I haven't been taking it long, so don't know yet if I will get any side effects, but works good for pain, and I can still function normally."
