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.

Advice & Tips: Don't take it if you have bad side effects. I switched to Mobic and have no bad side effects unless I take the 15mg.
