    I have severe OA with spinal fracture, etc. I had taken Celebrex for about 15 years.
    I stopped taking it 3 years ago. I'm thinking about taking it again since OTC pain relievers are ineffective. Other NSAIDs burn stomach.

    I guess I'm interested to know more.

    What was your reason for joining the group?

    Wondering about Celebrex and diarrhea. I'm an active 65 female, rather healthy. Taking Celebrex for kneecap pain, possible torn meniscus. I've been on Celebrex for about 6 weeks and now have been getting severe acid reflux and diarrhea. One thing positive is that Celebrex has helped both knee pain and lessened migraine headaches. I was wondering if Celebrex was causing the stomach/abdominal problems.

  • I am 55 yo, have had both knees replaced and left ...

    I am 55 yo, have had both knees replaced and left hip replaced as well as a spinal fusion L3-L4 for severe osteoarthritis. I took OTC Ibuprofen for years before starting celebrex 7-10 yrs ago. Over past 3 yrs, I have had worsening neck/occipital pain that has literally left me couch/bed ridden for periods of time. I have had multiple greater occipital nerve blocks as well as ablation of cervical branch nerves C2-C5 twice. I have tried chiropractic, traction therapy, PT, myofascial release, reflexology and accupuncture. Nothing seems to really help and the rebound after treatments is horrible. My accupuncturist is the one who said it may be the Celebrex. Have your symptoms gone away after stopping Celebrex or is there a treatment you have found to help? I am desperate for some long term relief. Thanks

    My daughter is 19 and has been taking Celebrex for three months. Her tounge has become very white and frothy. Indicative of thrush as of today. Just curious if others have had to go off the drug. It works nicely for her. Thank you

    I'm on Eliquis because I have atrial fibrillation and need to prevent stokes. I take Celebrex as needed for back issues and have been warned about taking the two together because of the danger of bleeding, maybe to death. Any ideas, comments?

    Suddenly I've started sweating, excessively. It's so bad that I cannot do yardwork because the sweat runs down my face and into my eyes. I was standing in the kitchen cooking and my big dog was drooling and I was dropping puddles on the floor as fast as he was. I just bought two bandanas today to wear around my forehead to see if that will catch the sweat. I looked it up on the computer and see Celebrex could be the cause. I have been taking it now for about three months.
    Has anyone else had this experience?

    I've noticed more vivid dreams--often frightening--since I began taking Celebrex. Last night my husband said I was screaming in my sleep. I don't remember the dreams. Should I stop taking the drug?
