I'm sorry if this has been discussed before but I couldn't find what I am looking for thru the search so if there is an older post that someone knows about, please point me in the right direction.
I have been on Celebrex now for 3 weeks for OA in my fingers. I have found that it doesn't really help much with the pain so I was wondering if anyone else has had success with this medication? I am on 200mgs to be taken once a day. I take it at night and my mornings are a bit better in regard to the pain in my hips and knees but I still can't bend my fingers without clenching my teeth in pain. I have a limitation of pain meds I can use because of my UC and my severe allergy to codeine.
