I was on Vioxx till they took it off the market. I can't take Celebrex or Betra as I am allergic to sulfa drugs. All three of these are what are called Cox 2 inhibitors. I am now on Mobic which is not a Cox 2 inhibitor. Should you become concerned about the Celebrex, you might want him to try the Mobic.
A word of caution though, some people find it takes several days for the Mobic to build up in their system and start working full force. It did with me and I'm glad I knew this or I'd have dumped it after the first day! The Vioxx had worked in one day so I would not have known better with the Mobic. Good luck!
Thanks I will have to keep Mobic in mine for my DH.
