I just need to wonder if celebrex is ok to take if I have Mitral Valve Prolapse, heart murmer, allergic to sulfa medications will be ok for me to take without further hurting my existing problems. I also have a Hiatel Hernia and Reflux syndrome. Do you reccomend me to take this? My Dr. says it is up to him and to take it, even if it is not helping my pain. I am on 100mg's a day. Thank you. ## No, reading your list of health problems I almost thought I must have originally posted it. If your doctor prescribe it for you then he/she already knows all your health issues. You don't state how long you've been on this med but if longer than 3 days and it's not helping then I would demand a change or go to another doctor. ## I am taking celebrex 200mg for 2 days but I feel chest... ...

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 shelf life
3 Replies RSS
What is the shelf life of Celebrex capsule 200mg. The date on mine is 5/2/09. They have been kept in the original pharmacy container in a cool dark cabinet. Are they still effective? ## When regular prescription tablets and capsules are dispensed, they are required to have a one year shelf life, from the time you get your prescription filled. That means that yours actually expired on 05/02/10. This doesn't mean that they are dangerous to use, but after that date, they can start to lose potency and not be as effective. Have you spoken to your doctor? It may be advisable to just get a new prescription, if you still need to use this medication. Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, stomach irritation and headache. ## Taking pills that are expired is not dangerous. They m... ...

Celebrex_Watch out!
1 Reply RSS
I used Celebrex for post dental surgery pain. After a few days of use, I suffered acute pansinusitis (all sinuses were infected and blocked), and after a week of use, I suffered a breakout of urticaria (skin rash) over most of my body. Not such pleasant side effects. And it cost me some days out of work. When the Celebrex worked, it worked well, but unfortunately the side effects are cause for concern. Studying the leaflet, I discovered that there a wide range of possible side effects, so whatever system/s are weak in your body (skin and sinuses in my case) get affected first. Be careful to all. ## Why didn't they give you some hydrocodone (Vicodin) for the pain and take OTC Aleve for anti-inflammatory. No bad side effects with those two. ...

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? ...

Depression & celebrex
2 Replies RSS
I have been on Celebrex for just over 6 months now. My Rheumatologist has had a heck of a time figuring out what exactly is wrong with me. So here it goes: for the longest time now I have been having flares, my muscles all stiffen up & spasm, which makes it hard to move. Joints hurt, but only because of the stiffness. I do not get restorative sleep and end up with depression quite badly. Energy level-zero. Heart race when I walk up the stairs (BTW Im 31 & weigh 135 & am 5'7' so its not related to my physical fitness). So Im stuck with this on again off again cycle that just about kills me. Suicide has been a big thought. So here's the kicker, being on the Celebrex has stopped all of the fatigue & mental issues. I have gone off and gone back on quite a few tim... ...

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.

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? ...

celebrex and rash on toes
2 Replies RSS
Has anyone experienced this symptom: Seven days after starting Celebrex, I developed a tender spot at the end of one toe -- very sensitive to touch and slightly red and swollen. A week later it has spread to other toes, either near the tip (to the left or right of the nail) or on the "knuckle" pinky toe and the one next to it. There seem to be small blisters too. This could be unrelated to the Celebrex and I've been reluctant to stop taking it (my neck and back pain have been greatly muted by the medication). ## It has been known to cause skin reactions in some people that take it, though it hasn't been very common. Learn more Celebrex details here. I really think it would be best if you consulted your doctor, so they can help you determine if it is from the medication, ... ...

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.

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... ...
