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... ...

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. ...

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... ...

Celebrex fibromyalgia
2 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 ...

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, ... ...

Can Celebrex cause faulty heart valves
2 Replies RSS
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? For some reason my blood pressure increased at an alarming rate even though I was taking a blood medication which was well under control. I am a non smoker, non drinker, and have always exercised and played some form of sport, what are your thoughts? I would be very interested to hear them. Lynette. ## Hello, Lynette! How are you? Yes, Celebrex has been known to cause hypertension, in some people that take it and yes, it can also cause some aortic valve problems. It isn't likely that you can prove that this was all caused by the Celebrex, but the possibility ... ...

What Is The Shelf Life Of Celebrex 200mg
2 Replies RSS
My pills are 28 months old, I wonder if there are still good ## It is highly likely that they have lost effectiveness and aren't worth taking, by now. The expiration date is usually one year from when they are dispensed to you by your pharmacy and the original container was opened, so they have been exposed to the elements that cause degradation, such as heat, light and moisture. At 28 months old, that means they are over another year past the original expiration date. Learn more Celebrex details here. Are there any other comments or questions? ## The experation date on all perscription medication is a year after the date it's written. But most medications are still good well after that date especially if they were stored in a freezer or refrigerator. This is from a study the mi... ...
