:I haven't heard of it or if I did, I forgot already. Let me check with a guy on another forum who I have a lot of faith in, and When he responds, I'll let you know his thoughts.
The little I know is that Vioxx takes the swelling down but is not a pain reliever, although in my case, much of the pain left with the swelling. I had your flu like symptems when I forgot to take the Vioxx. Are you taking the 12 1/2 or 25 mg dose?
I take 1500 to 3000 mg of glucosamine sulfate/chondroiten daily [depending on my memory], 2 flaxseed tablets, fish oil tablets, vitamins C,D,and E, and Tylenol, eat cold water fish, mostly salmon, and am trying [but cheating] to stay off dairy products, nightshade veggies, [need a substitute for tomatoes] alcohol, slipped up at lunch yesterday and caffine.
I excercise daily and am trying to make stretching and water excercising a bigger part of my regimen.
Needless to say, I have no life right now except work and fighting this damn arthritis.
I'm going right to the other forum and ask about Green Barley juice. Maybe I'll try it too....Gramps
Do you know if GREEN BARLEY JUICE helps with the pain of arthritis? I have read many glowing testamonials about the benefits of it, but don't want to waste MORE money on a "quack" remedy.
: I am currently taking VIOXX and want to stop because of all the side effects...elevated blood pressure, flu-like symptoms, swelling, etc.
: Any thoughts on this?
