For Osteoarthritis "For pain and swelling of my joints it worked the best, but my blood pressure went up and heart disease runs in my family. I wish I could have continued taking it."

For Osteoarthritis "A very good medicine that works for my knee pain, sometimes I do have to top it up with Tylenol Arthritis. All in all I recommend it for osteoarthritis."

For Pain "I started having extreme joint pain almost overnight and was like that for over 2 weeks. The Doctor put me on Celebrex, 2 pills 2 times a day for 5 days with 1 pill once a day since. I feel so much better and no side effects, not even an upset stomach. I'm so happy there is a pain medication that is not a steroid or narcotic."

For Pain "I have a disc protrusion at c4-5 and c5-6 which causes a narrowing in the foriminal which causes nerve root pain. In May of 2009 I was in excruciating pain and through the advice of my chiropractor he suggested that I mention to my spine specialist the medication Celebrex. My specialist said let's give it a try, and WOW what a miracle. I went from extreme pain, I wasn't even able to sleep on my left side, couldn't walk due to pain running down from my shoulder to my left thumb. I couldn't even bend to shave my legs. Well other than a little stomach irritation in the beginning, I have little to no pain. My insurance picks up the price of the medicine with me having to pay a nominal copay of $45.00. I can now exercise, ride my bike."

For Osteoarthritis "I don't like using medicines at all, especially long-term, but Celebrex did tame my symptoms enough for me to be able to pursue other therapies. It wasn't perfect. I still limped and had some pain and stiffness issues but it made a world of difference. I am now off of it, and have taken a big hit in my flexibility and mobility. "

For Osteoarthritis "I woke up one morning unable to walk and in horrible pain after a day out walking on the board walk. I took everything I could think of. Finally took Celebrex and within one hour the pain was gone. "

For Pain "On 400 mg a day and it works great in regards to my synovitis pain in all my joints that my lupus causes. No side effects after taking it for two months. I prefer taking this over prednisone any day."

For Pain "I have a 50% compression fracture of my L1 and Celebrex is the only thing that will alleviate the pain. Unfortunately it upsets my stomach."

For Pain "After my two total hip replacements I still have chronic pain due to having avascular necrosis. I rely on Celebrex to literally allow me to be able to walk. I received some samples in 2006 following my second surgery. My doctor at that time had enough samples so that I was taking them on a regular basis. Only after a short period without them did we realize to what extent they were helping me. I sincerely believe that I could not live a normal life without the Celebrex. It scares me to think that one day I may not be able to get it due to not being able to afford it. My co-pay is $60.00 for Celebrex every month and it is hard to do. I tell anyone I can what Celebrex has done for me, with absolutely no side effects."

For Rheumatoid Arthritis "Have been on Celebrex for a year. Initially for TMJ issues, then picked up mild-to-moderate rheumatoid arthritis last summer. Been on it continuously except for a couple month long steroid regimens. I wouldn't call it a miracle medicine, but it knocks my inflammation and pain back about 60%. Certainly not as effective as the steroid, but 60% is enough to keep me fully functional and unlike the steroid, I have minimal to zero side effects with it."

For Osteoarthritis "I envy the people who have had success with Celebrex. I need both knees replaced for osteoarthritis, and I also have pain in my back, neck, elbows, hips and wrists. I've been on Celebrex for 6 or 7 years. When I first used it, it used to make me very dizzy. But it NEVER ever relieved any pain for me! I always had to pop multiple Tylenol, Motrin or Advil to supplement, in order to get even minimum relief. My doctor put me on Arthrotec today, and I am really hoping for success. If that doesn't work, he's going to try me on Tylenol-3 (codeine-based)."

For Pain "Prescribed for back pain caused by crushed vertebra (I am trying to avoid surgery as long as possible). After three days of taking Celebrex I bent over for the first time in two years without nursing my back. I was amazed and thrilled. However, on the fifth day I noticed I had broken out in small rashes all over and was forced to discontinue taking it."

For Rheumatoid Arthritis "About a year ago I started having symptoms of RA (seronegative). I started on prednisone 20mg which helped somewhat but I was having flare ups in the ankles and hands. Finally got switched to Celebrex because the pain and swelling were not going away. 200mg daily - all I can say is it's been like night and day since I started taking it - less pain, less swelling, better days!"

For Rheumatoid Arthritis "I've been taking it for 2 months, 200 mg daily. The first 2 weeks were great, all pain was gone. The pain gradually came back and I had so many flare ups even when I was taking it. My doctor just gave me Prednisone 20 mg daily to combine with Celebrex. I started yesterday and most of the pain has gone, however, my doctor advised not to take Prednisone for more than one week in order to prevent having the serious side effects, such as bone problems."

For Osteoarthritis "I'm very pleased with Celebrex for the neck and knee pain caused by my osteoarthritis. I have no pain on climbing up and down the stairs (relief began after only several days). I not only have no neck pain, but also a dramatically increased range of motion...which makes it much safer for me to change lanes when I'm driving. The one problem I have is that I must take the medication after eating, otherwise tummy tenderness may occur."

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 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."
