Back Problems board

Orville ~ I was on celebrex & had my concerns as well. I was told that if you are on high doses of more than 800mg daily it may cause a problem but I do agree with Injured Betty that it'll most likely be the next to be pulled from the shelves. I have found that Feldene (piroxicam), which works wonderfully for me, even better than the celebrex. It is a non-steroidal antiinflammatory and like the others can be hard on the stomach but I only take it once daily and it seems to be doing the trick. A friend had been telling me to ask my doctor to switch me to this med for sometime and when the celebrex didnt work I went to the Feldene and am quite satified with it. Hope this helps...Goody
