Celebrex fibromyalgia
5 Replies RSS
Has anyone had a side effect with Celebrex that makes u feel more anxious and spasms in your back. I have only been on this med for four days and I can't tolerate what I'm feeling, any suggestions would be helpful ## It just might not be the right medication for you. Most medications have been known to cause the opposite of their intended effects in small percentage of the people that take them. Learn more Celebrex details here. You might want to check and see what your other options are for treatment. Are there any other questions or comments? ## Thank you for your response, it just so happens that I was taken off Celebrex due to the side affects and am now on Ultram and I feel human again, I appreciate the help and support that you've given me ## I have been taking Celebre...

Celebrex and alcohol
Post a Reply
I am planning to attend a family wedding this coming weekend. I have been on Celebrex for possible arthritis in my knees for about a week. One capsule, once a day. I would like to have a few glasses of wine at the wedding! Should I stop taking Celebrex for a few days and then begin use again after the wedding? How long does the Celebrex typically stay in your system? Is definitely working and helping me be able to wake up every morning with that stiffness in my joints! But I don't want to drink while on it.

generic celebrex
1 Reply RSS
I have been taking Celebrex and now my prescription plan sends me generic and it is not working for me, I am miserable. Are all generics from different companies all the same? ## Hello, Lizzie! How are you? What types of symptoms are you experiencing? No, not all generics are the same. Under the Hatch-Waxman Act of 1984, they are allowed to differ from the name brand, in the amount of the active ingredient, by as much as plus or minus 20%. They also do not have to measure against each other, only against the name brand, so one generic may be a little higher or lower in the amount of the active ingredient than the next. Usually, the differences are minute and your body will adjust after a week or so. How long have you been taking this new one? What are the markings on it?

celebrex and Xarelto!
1 Reply RSS
I take Xarelto for AFib. Also, just started Celebrex for arthritis and Fibro pain. Is this a dangerous combination? ## Hello, Ann! How are you? The main interaction I found listed is the bleeding risk, since Celebrex can also increase the risk of blood thinning and bleeding, as side effects, according to the FDA. That doesn't mean they cannot be taken together, if your doctor has prescribed them both, but you should be aware of the risks and your doctor should carefully calculate your dosage to be careful, plus they should be monitoring your regularly, in case any problems develop. Is there anything else I can help with?

celebrex expiration date

My celebrex has been in a cool dark place dated 5/19/2004. Are they still good? ## Hello, Bill! How are you? Medications do lose effectiveness with time, even in the original factory sealed containers, most are only good for 4 to 5 years, thus it would be best to dispose of it and see your doctor, if you need a new prescription. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and stomach irritation. Is there anything else I can help with?

metocarbamol what is it
1 Reply RSS
My. Other takes Celebrex and methocarbanol will be better to take just declofenis sodium in stead of the Celebrex and methocarbanol? Please advice she is 82 year old, with cevear osthioporosis and neuralgiaz. Thankyou ## Hello, Chapis! How is your mother? Methocarbamol is classified by the FDA as a muscle relaxant. It's used to relieve the pain associated strains, sprains and spasms. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and headache. Diclofenac is in the same drug class as Celebrex, so it will not replace both of them. Its typical side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation. Which has her doctor prescribed?

Celebrex, stomach, upset, food
1 Reply RSS
Hi I've been taking Celecoxib 100mg for 4 months now, it works great for my chronic pain but recently I've noticed it is making my stomach upset? Like diarrhea wise. Is it because I'm not taking it with enough food? Maybe my body has built up a resistance? But I still feel no pain in my shoulder so I'm not sure. I take it twice daily with food. Any comments are appreciated. I'm a 16 year old female with CRMO (chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis). ## Hello, Loosy! How are you? Stomach irritation is a very typical side effect of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications and sometimes, it still happens, even if you take it with food. The FDA lists its other side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness and headache. Have you consulted your doctor? You may...

I have celebrex 200mg from 2014, could I still use these? ## Hello, Merry! How are you? This medication doesn't become toxic after the expiration date, but it does lose effectiveness and probably won't work as well as it did, when new. Thus, it would be best to see your doctor for a new prescription. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation. Is there anything else I can help with?

Excessive sweating
1 Reply RSS
Celebrex made me sweat excessively on my scalp, so I had to stop using it. I used it for a few years 200mg per day, for arthritis and broken ankle and a very bad back. Will coxflam have the same side effect ## Hello, Bets! How are you? Coxflam contains the active ingredient Meloxicam, which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and stomach irritation. That said, the only way to discover if it will cause the same issue is by trying it. That's not a typical side effect that it's been known to cause, though. Is there anything else I can help with?

I have just been told I have a mild to moderate faulty heart valve I was taking 100g of Celebrex for 3-4 months earlier this year, I took myself off them as I never really felt well taking them, can Celebrex cause this problem?

My husband has a blood clot in his stomach he wants to take Celebrex also because he has back pain the doctor don't want him to take the Celebrex because it contain aspirin what else can he take can he take ultram ## Hello, Ga peach! How are you and your husband? Celebrex does not contain Aspirin, it is just in the same drug family, so it can cause the same risks. There are many other analgesic options available, but with that blood clot and his health, only his doctor is going to be able to tell what he can and cannot safely take. What options did his doctor offer? ## Hi, For back/neck pain I think your husband should consider seeing a chiropractor for treatment. I don't know where you're from, but if you're anywhere near Centreville, VA... there's a good place call...
