How long does it take Celebrex to Work ??

Ok, I've been taking Celebrex, 200mg once a day, like a good girl, for a week now. I still have stiffness, popping. How long does this take to work ??
If at all, I don't want to spend the money each month, to refill this script, if it does not work. I am willing to give it more time. What has been your experience with Celebrex ?

Give it the full month as long as you have that many. It can take that long for it to build up and slow the inflammation. It has a lot of fight against.

If you have no response by the time the script needs to be refilled, ask your doc about trying an NSAID that is stronger.

You might try meloxicam if this doesn't prove out. It's only $4 at WalMart.
