Hi, i have a slight pain in my throat and well my doctors in school prescribed celebrex to me. Now im a bit of a freak and hate meds so i went and did some research on the drug and well the side effects scare me and im quite hesitant to take the drug. So how safe is the drug? i don have an medical conditions that im aware of at least.
Amen; if your still having problems you should give it a try. Take it with food and only as directed It's okay to look and see side effects etc. But never unless you have other medical problems let them shake you up and decide not to try what the doctor thinks you may get relief from. If you read up on aspirin or Ibuprofen or even many vitamins you would wonder about even taking them. In most cases. it is very rare to get any side effects from many meds when you look at the trials and how many people had the side effect vs those that had no problems are very low. I have been on this medication off and on for years and never had any problems. Best of luck and hope you get to feeling better. Chuck1957
