Advice & Tips: I was started on this medication due to I was on coumadin for a time for a blood clot I had July 2009. I couldn't take anything else except for Celebrex and it actually has been helpful somewhat in my pain & inflammation. I still am very stiff when I wake up, though. Nothing much changes that! But overall, it does a better job than ibuprofen with managing pain of the RA.

Advice & Tips: This is an amazing NSAID's! (Non Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drug.) Over the years there have been a few time where I have forgotten it at home when going away for the weekend, run out and forgot to refill it in time, or just plain got up and forgot to take it, and I must say: Immediately I notice I've forgotten it as I can feel the effects of just one missed dose! Truly I recommend it to anybody with RA, as I would be at a total loss without my Celebrex.
