Celebrex

Celebrex

My Dr. Switched me to Celebrex from prednisone. It is not helping at all. Woke up this morning with such a sore foot I could hardly walk. Does anyone else have experience with Celebrex? Does it help with your pain management?

What Works For Pain?

What Works For Pain?

I was just diagnosed with SLE in August 2015. I'm taking Plaquenil, for a few months now, and my Rheumatologist has been hoping it'll help my chronic pain. It hasn't. She said give it more time but prescribed Celebrex. I haven't started it yet, because other meds like Mobic, Ibuprofen, flexaril, and a host of others, haven't worked in the past, before diagnosis. So I'm doubtful. Any suggestions for a med that might work? Or does the Plaquenil really take months before I see improvement?

Severe Allergic Reactions???

Severe Allergic Reactions???

I am freaking out tonight! I had a severe reaction to Celebrex today. I have had it with Asa, Ibuprofen, and Prilosec! I did not develop these reactions until diagnosis of overlapping CTD. Does anyone else have drug sensitivity or reactions? It was a 3 day delay and I thought for sure I was going to be hospitalized. DR spoke about Rush procedure prior to this set back.
