Hello celebrex. I would suggest a taper. Your doctor could recommend a plan for you. Best of wishes and health, pledge

Celebrex is an NSAID and there is no need to wean off of it. I would consult with my dr about stopping it of course. You won't have any withdrawal from stopping it.

Agree, no need to taper, that is doc's advice from a couple days ago. It's an anti-inflammatory, not a controlled substance.
