I have just started on the drug after reinjuring my knee after kneecap replacement surgery. Due to the injury, my doc says I have some more arthritis developing. She gave me a Cortisone shot to help make me more comfortable until the Celebrex kicks in. Don't want to do another. OUCH! They hurt and have not helped in the past, but doc wants to give it a try for comfort measures. Any advice would be welcome! Thanks!

It took about 2 weeks for me to feel real relief from Celebrex, but I have friends that can use it as needed. It is designed to take regularly. Other friends got relief within days. I really hope it works for you before you get this answer. I guess I didn't hit the right buttons Friday when I answered you. Best of luck!

When I first tried Celebrex I got relief right away from my arthritis pain, but unfortunately as with all other NSAIDs, my tummy cannot tolerate it. I wish you luck. It worked great for me. Sometimes, & you know if you have had the cortisone shot in the knee before, that can take a few days to stop hurting.
