I have been on Celebrex for about 2 years and it is a miracle drug for me! I remember is starting to work after about 3-4 days, but it all depends on the individual. Now that the Celebrex is built up in my system, if I miss one day I can tell a definite difference! Once it starts working, don't miss! Celebrex is like oiling a squeeky hinge; try to be patient and when it kicks in, enjoy the relief it brings you.

Good Luck!
