I had two heart attacks prior to Triple Bypass surgery 5/5/2010. I have been taking Celebrex for about six years for arthritis. I have had both knees replaced also. Lately I read an article from AARP that said "Scientists are issuing a stark new warning for people who have had a heart attack and continue to use popular painkillers like Advil (ibuprofen) or Celebrex (celecoxib). Don't take them unless you absolutely have to." I also take drugs for Pain Management (oxycodone & oxycontin). What is the truth about taking Celebrex?
