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.
