 5  Arthritis and disc surgery pain I haven't had any side effects from this at all. I've only been taking it for a week and the pain relief is better than the narcotic meds. I was given for my latest spinal surgery. I wish I could use this long term, but unfortunately over 22 years of spinal surgeries I've taken too many NSAIDs and got an ulcer from Naproxen. I have to be very careful. F 57 7 days

 4  Frozen shoulder Weird dreams. But if upset tummy but pain relief outweighed these side effects. I was prescribed Celebrex for a excruitiatingly painful frozen shoulder . I take 200mg in the morning and it helps take edge off all day until dinner time when the pain comes back with a vengeance. I then take 100mg after dinner. No pain relief from this as by nature the frozen shoulder is most painful at night. Awake most of night in pain. When I do sleep for shorts bursts I have the weirdest dreams. They're not scary though so it's ok . I also have sore knees due to osteo arthritis and the celebrex is actually helping them quite a lot. Do. Happy overall. I dread to think what it would be like if I couldn't take it as I react badly to most pain meds. F 52 8 weeks

 4  Arthritis Constant gas, stinky urine, dizziness, vertigo at times. Dry, itchy, red, sore especially the tops, very swollen feet to approximately six inches above my ankles. My ankles and feet feel very swollen, as do my legs and knees. Worked great at combatting the arthritis but the side effects to my legs and feet are not worth it. . F 63 3 years
200 MG 1X D
 2  hip surgery protocol Gas; bloating; weight gain; abdominal discomfort I had to take celebrex for 3 weeks following a hip surgery to prevent bone regrowth. While it is an NSAID, I don't feel like it did anything for the pain. Luckily, I had other meds for that. I definitely didn't enjoy the crazy amount of gas it produced in my stomach and the abdominal discomfort. Glad I was only on it for 3 weeks. F 30 3 weeks
200mg 2X D
 1  Arthritis Extreme swelling 15 pounds worth in a very short time. I went to my doctor and he immediately told me to stop the Celebrex and gave me fluid pills. Now almost 3 weeks later I am still having some swelling. We are concerned because I never had swelling before. I am healthy with normal blood pressure except for arthritis. I am concerned the Celebrex has caused a heart or kidney problem. I wish I had never taken this stuff! F 68 25 days
200 1X D
 4  Arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis. Very few for many years. Lately experiencing very dry mouth and regular incidence of canker sores. So I've cut back to 100mg from 200mg a day, in case the drug is causing it. Giving it three months and I'll add the additional 100mg if I can't prove the connection. Lower dose does mean the arthritis in my hands in painful on a more regular basis but I am treating it with heat and more intentional movement. F 67 10 years
100 1X D

 4  AS Sleepiness ( usually a couple of hours ) especially if you eat anything at all, a yogurt can knock you out for a while. No eat - no problem. Celebrex was prescribed to replace steroids, it worked reasonably well to start with but after about 10 years, seems to be failing to do much. Just been given short course of steroids for a chest infection, you wouldn't believe how many dead bits have returned after 1 dose of prednisolone M 67

 3  chronic knee pain Seems to work with pain management, but I'm exhausted. Going to bed now right after my kids, and sleeping in. Just can't keep my eyes open... F 37 7 days

CELEBREX  (CELECOXIB):  This medication is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), specifically a COX-2 inhibitor, which relieves pain and swelling (inflammation). It is used to treat arthritis, acute pain, and menstrual pain and discomfort. The pain and swelling relief provided by this medication helps you perform more of your normal daily activities. If you are treating a chronic condition such as arthritis, ask your doctor about non-drug treatments and/or using other medications to treat your pain. See also Warning section. This drug works by blocking the enzyme in your body that makes prostaglandins. Decreasing prostaglandins helps to reduce pain and swelling.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
