My Rhumy brushed me off with "If 25mg's doesn't work, then 50 mg's won't help."

I'm certainly no doctor, but if you are going to go with 50 mg's, I would take 25 in the am and 25 at night. When I was secretly taking 50mg's, I tried it both ways for 10 days and didn't notice any difference, but I would think it would be safer than 50mg's at one time.

Last night, I switched from taking my 25mg's, in the morning to before bedtime because I am having problems sleeping more than 3 hours at one time and I'm trying everything I can think of to change things.

On another forum, green tea and tart cherries were reccommended as a possible substitute for Vioxx and Celebrex. What ever you do, good luck...Gramps
