Delaudid side effects

Has had allergic reaction to Celebrex before and quit taking medicine. Also has Parkinsons and has increased Carbadop/levadopa gradually. Is rash from Delaudid? ## Hello, Jon! How are you? At this point, with the various medications he's on, it's difficult to say. It might be from the Dilaudid, or it could be unrelated. Has he had it checked out, yet?

Celebrex_Watch out!

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 shelf life

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 and Xarelto!

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? ## My primary doctor prescribed xarelto for a recent deep vein thrombosis and Celebrex for my arthritis Is this a safe combination? I am worried. ## Can u take Motr... ...

Celebrex, stomach, upset, food

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.

Any comments are appreciated. I'm a 16 year old female with CRMO (chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis). ## Hello, Loosy! How are you?

I took my first 100 mg Celebrex for arthritis on disk at 4 pm and while it took pain away right away,I felt headache and spacey - kind of like drugged and laid on the couch rest of day.

i take both hydrocodone 7 5 325 for pain and celebrex 200 inflamation is there any problem with this

I take hydrocodone 7.5 325 for pain from degenerated disks in spine and I take celebrex 200 for arthritis pain and inflamation, is there any problem with this? One medication alone does not take care of my problem. ## It is common for drs to prescribe an opiate and something for inflammation. ## @Marcia, Most research I'm finding doesn't indicate that there are any interactions between Hydrocodone and Celebrex. However, one report I came across does imply that using the two together may increase the plasma concentration and effects of Hydrocodone; and that your doctor should monitor your blood levels in case a dosage adjustment is deemed necessary. Having said that, my intuition tells me that it's not a "serious" drug interaction. Though it seems like it would still ... ...
