- celebrex, osteoarthritis
I finally went to the pain management clinic today. They diagnozed me with Osteoarthritis. I suffer from back and hip pain.
The doctor told me to tak 1000 mg of Tylenol Extra Strength 3 times a day. Apparently it's important to take it that way and not miss any doses. It seems to have a residual effect.
He also presribes Celebrex 200 mg to take twice a day. Does anyone have any experience with this drug?
