Discussions that mention celebrex

I started using a combination of glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin for an osteoarthritis flare [knee sports injury]. Celebrex was not producing any favorable results and my physician felt this supplement was unlikely to cause any harm. The glucosamine and chondroitin combination was much more effective than the Celebrex. Even the physiotherapist remarked on the improvement - strength, range of motion and less 'grittiness' between the joints.

If you're interested, here's a link to a clinical research study currently underway which is evaluating glucosamine alone, a combination of glucosamine plus chondroitin, coaxib [Celebrex] and placebo.
