I just logged on to post this very article. Thanks, Susan!My favorite part is "But Celebrex's stomach benefits have never been proved, and clinical trials have repeatedly linked Celebrex to heart problems. In addition, Celebrex is far more expensive than the older painkillers, costing about $3 a pill, compared with a few cents for naproxen or ibuprofen."What a drug!
My name is Jane Eaton and i would like to show you my personal experience with Celebrex.I have taken for 11 months. I am 39 years old. Celebrex works too well, which is why it is so dangerous. It is one of the most effective things you can take for arthritis-type issues, and for controlling inflammation/pain after knee surgery. But the side effects are very extreme: intestinal bleeding/perforation, heart problems, and liver toxicity. I am allergic to Ibuprofen and Alleve, so Clebrex was a life saver. But I am not willing to sacrifice my liver for it. The ER staff told me that they see very serious side effects in Celebrex patients.Side effects- I ended up in the emergency room in extreme pain and hyperventilating because of liver problems.I hope this information will be useful to others,Jane Eaton
