I used to take Celebrex and Mobic, for Joint pains etc. Switched to Mobic, about 10 years ago when things started coming out about side effects with Celebrex. Mobic worked wonderful.
But I just asked my Gastro Dr, about me taking either one again, and I just got the *LOOK* from him, as if to say, Um, do you want to make your Crohns worse????
When I had my 3rd treament of Remicade Sept 30th 2009, it basically attacked my joints and arthritis every where on my body, I couldn't even walk that night. So it was an amulance trip to the ER, My husband called the Er first and explained the side effects that I was having and that I had just gottne a treatment of Remicade that mornung. i've just been diagnosed with Crohns in the begining of Aug 09. so this is all new to me.
So now for pain that is every where still in my body, I take 1- 30mg tablet of Oxycodone every 4 hrs. I can only take them early in the am, and early afternoon, as they get me *wired* and if I take them to late I can't sleep.
So now late afternoon I take Vicodine 2-3 7.5 mg tablets then again at bed time. So this way my body is some what functionable.
The 3rd treatment of Remicade has really attacked my joints, nerves, muscles etc every where in my body with either pain or Tingly and numbness.
I'm just so afraid to try Celebrex or anything of the such, as I do not need anything ti further cause more problems with the Crohns.
Hugssssss and I hoep this helps.
My husband is on both Celebrex and Flexeril. Celbrex is 2 100mg pills a day, and the Flexeril is 1 10mg tablet 3 times a day. He takes them for his neck and shoulder problems. If he doesn't take them as he is supposed to, he will get a massive head ache.
