For Osteoarthritis: I have flare-ups of arthritis in my knees. I am an 80 year old female. I take Celebrex only as needed, at about 3 month intervals. When I have a problem walking, I take Celebrex 1 table a day for three days - it is like a miracle drug. It does away with the knee pain and I am back to walking as I need to. I have had NO side effects so far. I think it is a miracle drug. Not everyone has had the same good fortune but this works for me and I keep it on hand for this limited use.

For Pain: Used to treat chronic pain (idiopathic origin, but could be fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue). Ease of use was fine, only side effects were stomach upset.

For Osteoarthritis: I would not do without it. It has helped me now for over 3 years along with Tramadol. I can hardly walk in the mornings but after I take my medicines I can walk, run, dance, etc. Like I said, I need the Celebrex in my life or I'm no good.

For Pain: I LOVE Celebrex! I have degenerative disk disease, bulged disk and degenerative hips. My doctor had me try it after learning how I can tolerate 6 ibupropen a day. I have been 85% better as far as the daily pain. I can do things in exercise that I could not before, due to the pain. I take homeopathic anti inflammatory supplements as well. I am a 43 year old photographer, pilates student and teacher living in pain for over 6 years. So wonderful to have this relief.

For Rheumatoid Arthritis: I knew that I had an arthritis since I started College. Since then I'm suffering from it after my doctor told me to take this medicine. Thanks to Celebrex my suffering has ended. This medicine is great!

For Pain: I'm 21 years old and the doctor told me I have arthritis (I found out from another doctor I do NOT) but they put me on this to help with the pain (from my car accident, not from arthritis) and it did NOT work. It made me have lots of bloody stool and severe abdominal pain. It barely reduced the pain.

For Rheumatoid Arthritis: I'm 17 years old and last year I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. I was switched to 200mg of Celebrex three months ago instead of taking 20mg of prednisone a day. And all I can say is that Celebrex has made my life almost normal again. I can go back to school and hang out normally with my friends again. Even if it might only be short term, Celebrex has saved my life.

For Pain: Based on 200 mg 1 per day; only thing I got was heart burn, no pain relief. Tried to take everyother day, didn't make any difference still got horrible heart burn. Switched to Mobic.

For Pain: Tried Tylenol with codeine, physical therapy (14 sessions), and cortisone injection directly into left sacroiliac joint. No relief from severe night pain in left lower back and buttocks until Celebrex. 2 days of 2 pills/day, no more pain. A true miracle! I feel like 'me' again!

For Pain: After my d&c last year, I had celebrex 200mg as needed for pain daily x 7 days. It was great. Last week after I had an endo-ablation. I was the first one to ask my doctor; for celebrex again. It is one of the best non-narcotic pain medication.

For Pain: I tried Celebex for degenerative disc disease, and for pain associated with upper back surgery (spinal fusion). It didn't work well. And because I was in a stressful profession my doctors worried about heart issues associated with Celebrex. I changed to Norco 7.5/325 5 years ago and it has worked very well along with physical therapy. I'm a 53 year old male.

I take Celebrex for tendinitis (in my elbows and ankles). Pain and swelling stopped within one day of taking 400mg, and I have been free of pain for several months. I now take a 200 mg capsule only when needed (and that isn't often).

For Pain: I was on Celebrex for over two years as treatment for pain following a severe back injury. I am over 50 years old and Celebrex was very effective. I was referred to another doctor who replaced Celebrex with Tridural. Celebrex is my choice but I have to follow my doctor's instructions.

For Osteoarthritis: Celebrex has been really great for my arthritis and Ankylosing Spondylitis. I can actually function almost normally with about half the prescribed dosage (which is normally 2 per day). The one pill will take care of the pain for about 36-40 hrs.

For Pain: I'm a 52 yr old male with a weak left Sacroiliac joint and often get a nerve pinch (L5L6) that's cause shooting pain down my leg or difficulty standing up straight. I take Celebrex for 2-4 days and it clears right up. It's been amazing for me.

For Osteoarthritis: I've been through 3 other types of NSAIDs before I was prescribed Celebrex. It works great for me, and the side effects have been pretty mild compared to the previous ones.

For Osteoarthritis: I have been taking Celebrex for a little over 2 years. I was having severe knee pain due to my arthritis. This is the only medication that reduced that pain significantly. My doctor prescribed it when nothing else worked.

For Rheumatoid Arthritis: Celebrex has helped me now for over 5 years. I have Arthritis in one old disc injury and pain in the next one. I have tried nearly all of them and nothing worked as well as this. Just don`t know how long to continue but I am only 49. I take 400 per day.

For Pain: I have had back problems for almost forever. Recently, my doctor preferred me to take an over-the-counter instead of Celebrex because of potential heart-related issues. I tried to do so, but my condition did not get better. I used Celebrex and it helped very much. Sometimes less is more: I needed less Celebrex (6) versus lots of the other stuff.
