I took CELEBREX for 7 weeks before I discovered that it has a sulfa component. I am allergic to sulfa, sulfer, sulfanamide, etc) I had some side bad effects.
Guess what !! I now also find out that the ZOCOR I have been taking for 2 months is why my joints and hand arthritis were hurting unusually bad! That is why the doctor gave me celebrex. I have bad side effects to ZOCOR but it was hidden by the Celebrex and then I had the sulfur allergy complications with that!
I found all of this out on my own just googling all I could.
I hope my liver, kidney, heart, etc are not damaged! I did
catch this all in 8 to 12 weeks and my doctor is listening
and we are on the ball with bloodwork and communicating.
I did stop the drugs the minute I discovered what was going
on and I do think I have a little withdrawl from Celebrex.
We must be our own advocate. I am always asking questions.
After all, I am from Missouri the show me state!!!
Thanks for listening,
