Really? I'd be curious to see that information. Everything I know about it is that it's a safer, preferred alternative to opiates. The problem is that it's not nearly strong enough for a lot of people suffering from chronic pain. I have two different relatives who take it fairly regularly, though, so I'd be interested in seeing these side effects. Most sources say that it has few side effects, and that they're rare.
