Important Safety Information

All prescription NSAIDs, like CELEBREX, ibuprofen, naproxen, and meloxicam have the same cardiovascular warning. They may all increase the chance of heart attack or stroke that can lead to death. This chance increases if you have heart disease or risk factors for it, such as high blood pressure or when NSAIDs are taken for long periods.

I did try it but had to stop due to stomach problems.

but I'm sure it helps many others.

I took celecoxib for a while, and found it very good - there was a lot of fuss about the side effects and everyone got taken off it, but now it's back. I would take it again if i was offered - I liked it a lot!

I was prescribed them years ago, only managed to take them for a few days at a time as they upset my stomach. My doctor then said I couldn't take them regular because there was some concern about heart problems with them. He does still give me a couple of packets, but to be taken only when really need. I was also given some Lansoprazole for the stomach. I must admit that they were the best thing I ever took pain.It sounds like doctors are prescribing it again, so may ask next time I go to the doctors
