Celebrex (celecoxib) for Pain: "My acute pain happened after I had the first Prolia injection May 1, 2017 and It caused my immune system to be out of whack. IBS, mouth and tongue sores, teeth, hair, bones and then the thoracic pain. Have had 2 Epidurals. Have had ultrasounds on my arm for pain. Shoulder and collarbone pain. I cannot tell if Celebrex is helping as I have only been taking it for a week. I took Gabapentin but it caused me to be very dizzy and sluggy. I wish a doctor could tell me what is going on and help me with this horrible pain. I had never been sick before."

Celebrex (celecoxib) for Ankylosing Spondylitis: "Works well, been on it for years so may becoming immune. Not all generic versions are as good as Pfizer, I nearly came to a total stop after taking generic version for a few weeks, gone back to genuine ones and noticed change within 24 hours. If you get plain white capsule with Y 100 written on it expect trouble. I am in UK."

For Pain: "I have psoriatic arthritis and have been on Celecoxib from another manufacturer for over 2 years and my pharmacist changed me over to the Torrent brand of the 200mg Celecoxib. Within 3 days I had extreme heartburn and gas----I was so very uncomfortable starting right after I took the pill first thing in the morning as I always had. I went back to the pharmacy today and got the other Celecoxib I had taken before. anxious to get back on track again after a miserable 5 days...."

Celebrex (celecoxib) for Pain: "I have severe pain, stiffness, inflammation in the shoulder/arm/hand from an injury that occurred years ago. At first it was called severe left brachial plexopathy, but it has turned into chronic pain syndrome. At first doctors prescribed heavy meds that caused really bad side effects, so I asked dcs to change pres. Eventually the new doctors have been prescribing gabapentin, meloxican, celecoxib, and some other medications to help my stomach. I was on a temporary trial for an spinal stimulator, together with my medication and it improved my pain. However, for the permanent stimulator Dr told me to stop taking celecoxib for 2 weeks before surgery... The pain came back so bad I haven't been able to sleep at all for almost a week."

Celebrex (celecoxib) for Osteoarthritis: "53 year old male with bad knee. I was prescribed this for my knee. With in two days of 200 mg once a day, I woke up and had joint and muscle pain in my ankles, feet, arms, wrists and elbows. In addition I had sinus pressure so bad that it hurt to touch my face. I immediately quit taking and the symptoms are receding but still there two days later."

Celebrex (celecoxib) for Pain: "I used to suffer from chronic headache since childhood (I'm 29 years old now). Back in 2015 I was injured and my doctor prescribed me this drug. It wasn't very helpful with my injury; however, my headache almost completely disappeared. I didn't notice that my headache is gone until my mom once told me "I no longer notice you complaining about your headache" so definitely this is not a placebo effect."

No sign of internal damage. Haven't seen doctor yet. Thought I'd give it some time. Been two weeks. Anyone else had similar experience???"

Celebrex (celecoxib) for Rheumatoid Arthritis: "Celebrex has been wonderful for me--I never thought I would be able to regain mobility as well as I have. I haven't experienced any side effects at all. It took weeks to work, but I couldn't be more pleased with it now. I've noticed on some of the comments here that it worked immediately for some people, but it's not always like that, so be patient and give it time--hope this helps!"

For Pain: "I've been having sharp pain down my left leg for the last 6 months, I have been given codeine, naproxen, Tramadol, Amitriptyline and so much more. Eventually after trying all of these tablets and realising the made me feel worse and emotional to the point I'd rather be in pain so I had just been taking Ibuprofen constantly. I have had 100mg of Celecoxib twice a day for two days and I couldn't be happier. It has had no side effects and takes most of the pain away."

Celebrex (celecoxib) for Rheumatoid Arthritis: "Works fantastic, a wonder drug...except for a flushed face for about twenty minutes. I had excruciating hip pain, nothing worked except Tylenol and Motrin in huge doses. One 200 mg dose of celebrex reduced 90% of my pain and allowed greater range of motion. I'm truly amazed. I have been using this two days. 50 yrs old and had a very physical life, this seems to be my path back to full physical activity."

Celebrex (celecoxib) for Pain: "Celebrex has been the only thing to help me for my lupus inflammation and pain . I'm always in pain, my entire body and joints. We haven't been able to get down the inflammation. In October I switched rheumatologists and she changed my meds and immediately my pain was finally reduced and tolerable! I let myself run out this week for the first time and I'm in soo much pain! My husband is at the pharmacy right now for it. I refuse typical addictive pain pills. Celebrex has helped me tremendously, I haven't had a crying breakdown from pain since I started it!"

Celebrex (celecoxib) for Pain: "Hi everyone, Dealing with knee osteoarthritis for years. Pain got so bad that I could only do minimal exercise and was waking up from pain. Ibuprofen does help, maybe a 50% pain inhibition taking 6 pills a day. With Celebrex, 200mg/ twice daily, I am having about 90% pain reduction. I am now biking daily, no problem going up and down stairs. This is a miracle drug. Not a cure, but close!"

Celebrex (celecoxib) for Pain: "It works for inflammation from my neuroma/foot pain, however, it makes me tired all the time and I seem grumpier - LOL. Also, after being on it for a month, when I decided to go off, my legs and ankles really really had major water retention. So, maybe when going off of it, it's a better idea to not stop all at once, but taper off so the body can adjust. The side effect of going off of this stuff and the drowsiness is why I rated it low. Otherwise, it does work for inflammation!!"

Celebrex (celecoxib) for Osteoarthritis: "Generally has been effective in treating osteoarthritis pain/ inflammation. For me it worked noticeably better than meloxicam. I have taken it on an as needed basis for at least 5 years and have had no appreciable side effects."

Celebrex (celecoxib) for Rheumatoid Arthritis: "Am in my 60s but have had arthritis since early 40s. Arthritis is both osteo and rheumatoid. I only take Celebrex when it's really painful especially in my hands. Celebrex starts easing the pain immediately and within 6 hrs I feel like I'm 21 yrs old again! It is a miracle medicine for me! !!"

Celebrex (celecoxib) for Pain: "I have been on Celebrex for a long long time. I stopped taking it because I was pain free/symptom free maybe 6 weeks ago. I started to have pain again maybe 2 weeks after stopping it. I attributed it to my exercise routine, wrong shoes etc. I used ice to alleviate the symptoms. I didn't think of it until today that my increased pain was due to stopping the Celebrex. I've reordered it and will start again today."

Celebrex (celecoxib) for Pain: "After my nucleoplast surgery in 2001 constant pain because my 3 lower disks were turned into (flat tires) since they remove some of the disks juice, no surgeons could help me, I just had the right and left nerves deadened by a nerve block that did not work and the lower steroids shots work a couple days, the one dr put me on gabbapentin helped about 5% with the pain, and last week I read in the AARP paper that celebrex is not really that bad or dangerous ,its on the same level as motrin or ibuprofin, after taking the 200 mg pill twice a day for the past 3 days my pain has lessened 80% and I am sure as it builds up it will kick in and work for me. Its been a GODSEND since my pain was driving me crazy ,I can sleep now."

Celebrex (celecoxib) for Pain: "I noticed a lot of people on here giving up after only a week or so.I have been on Celebrex for years and at different times I would stop for a week or 2 immediately I would start going downhill. Celebrex needs to build up in your system the more time you take it the more it helps.Should give it at least a month.I was on heavy pain meds for years now all I take is Celebrex I have severe neck and back problems and severe arthritis.Celebrex is a miracle drug for me without the side effects of heavy pian meds.Thank you for Celebrex it has changed my life"

Celebrex (celecoxib) for Osteoarthritis: "After the results of the latest 10 year study came out in late 2016 claiming the safety of the product, I decided to ask my doctor to put me on it for my Osteoarthritis. It helped immensely! I am sure my pain was decreased by at LEAST 30-40% if not more! When you're in constant pain and discomfort, that amount is a huge relief! I started just a few weeks before my hip replacement due to "bone on bone" caused by my osteoarthritis. ANY relief is welcome! I would most definitely recommend this to anyone to at least try! I use the generic brand."

Celebrex (celecoxib) for Osteoarthritis: "Celebrex allows me to go day to day almost pain free. Nothing else fights my pain caused by osteoarthritis of the upper spine. I have taken 200 mg once a day on and off for over 15 years. Occasionally I do need to take it daily for a few weeks. I am so grateful for this med and for the doctors who prescribe it. I strongly recommend it."
