Comment:
I am in my early 30s and I was diagnosed with extremely painful Busitis in my hip. I have been taking Celebrex for almost 3 weeks with great success. The nausea is tolerable, and as long as I take the medication with food, it doesn't even start. I have had no other side effects.

Comment:
I have used Celebrex for over 2 years to ease the pain of a knee damaged in a motorcycle accident and surgically repaired. I tried to quit but the pain was intense. Celebrex keeps my pain under control until such time as it worsens and I need a joint replacement. I have found nothing else that works as well. No apparent side effects, but I always take this medicine with food.

I am 46 and have wear and tear arthritis (osteoarthritis) in both knees. I need to have them replaced but I am too young. I was taking Tramadol and BC Powder for arthritis and got only minor relief.

I take blood pressure meds but checked with my pharmasist and ... Show Full Comment

After first dose experienced severe tinnitus/roaring in ears. Tried again few days later and same result. Stopped taking it altogether. Vioxx was much better tolerated years ago.
