In Reply to: Is anyone using Vioxx or Celebrex? posted by Kevin B. on August 22, 2000 at 20:46:32:
: I am currently using Vioxx. My stomach feels better ever since I stopped taking my Nsaid Flurbiprofen and started taking Vioxx about two or three weeks ago. I had been on Flurbiprofen for about two years. It was later that my stomach developed ulcers and I had no idea it was because of the Nsaid. The reason I switched to begin with inspite of the stomach trouble was because it seemed as if the Nsaid quit working. My doctor gave me some samples of Vioxx to try for two weeks. I am glad I tried it, mainly for my stomach ails. Has anyone else tried Vioxx or Celebrex? How do you like them? I do pay more, but it might be worth it. Thanks. Kevin B.
Kevin, I took Vioxx for approx. 2 mos. and it helped tremendously. However, it caused my blood pressure to elevate, fluid retention, and weight gain and I had to discontinue it. Now, I'm back on Ibuprofen and it's not working near as good as the Vioxx did. I do hope it works out for you but you might need to keep check on your blood pressure. The best to you!
