I had been on Vioxx for over a year, recently have taken my self off and I am starting to feel great again. I have been complaining of fatigue and I mean real fatigue; like the feeling you get when you first wake up from a nap but this lasted 6-8 hrs a day, insomnia; taking 100mg of benadryl to put myself down at night, and the headaches; never had more than one a year previously. My doctor like many was relating all of this to the disease process, bullshit!!!! I have been off for three weeks now, back to Motrin forthe pain, limiting it to 1 or two max. a day and I feel great. I sleep at night; also noticed I am dreaming again, I think Vioxx must have also been inhibiting my REM sleep. I have no more headaches and the extreme fatigue is gone. I am starting to look for varification to my suspicions......not much out there but I know how I feel :)
: I have taken Vioxx since December, I think????, and in January I had a cold and since then, my left nostril has had a running and stuffy problem, mostly at night or heavy excercise. I thought that since it was only on one side it was probably a sinus thing.
: My biggest problem since being on Vioxx and it may not be connected at all is only sleeping an hour or two at a time. That may be just from getting old. Good luck to you, it's time for my nap...Gramps
: : Every since I have been taking VIOXX, I have been bothered with a runny nose and cold-like symptoms. Have any of you experienced anything like this?
