In Reply to: Re: ATENOL for arthritis pain...correction to original post posted by Larry on September 10, 2000 at 04:03:12:
: : Is anyone out there taking the new drug, Atenol, for the relief of arthritis pain? If so, what are the pros/cons? Thanks
: I meant to say Mobic NOT Atenol. I believe Mobic was released for use 5/00 for arthritis pain. The claim is that there's fewer side-effects than with Celebrex and Vioxx. Any input?
I have not heard that mobic has fewer side effects than celebrex or vioxx---that is from anyone except the marketer of the drug. I have in fact read that it is a bit rougher on the stomach and intestinal tract, for some, but that if the side effects can be tolerated, or don't appear, mobic is a bit more effective than either of the other two. These testimonials were by patients who had tried all three of the drugs---not by those in the medical field...,beau
