I have read all the reviews and seems like a miracle drug, I have not tried it yet,but at 52 years old I have already had a spinal fusion and knee replacement, constant pain, pinched nerves, pain radiating down both legs and radiating from the pinched nerve in my back as well, shoulder bursitis in both shoulders,osteoarthritis, even with percocet 10s. I am going to ask my Doctor to try me on Celebrex instead. But nobody mentioned anything about side effects, has anyone had weight gain/ loss?
I didn't notice any weight change with it. I have an unfortunate history of ulcers with NSAIDS and this one was no exception. But that was me, with a tendency to ulcers anyway, and I had no other side effects from it.
I have been on this stuff and it can go either way, it varies from patient to patient. I would also like to suggest rather than you suggest this medication, see what the Dr comes up with first. I find it's always better to let them make their suggestions first. Then you can ask (ask) about the one you have in mind or have seen on TV. Anytime there's pain involved it's best to have the ball in the Dr's court first. Hope this helps.
