Celebrex is my hero med.!
I was getting samples for it for about a yr from my Dr. he recently ran out of the samples
Within 2 days of being off it I noticed a HUGE difference in my pain as well as stiffness in all my joints.
My insurance won't pay for it - as they say I can take ibuprofen and get the same relief. NO I can't! I tried before the samples were given to me and I have tried in the last few days. I took a large dose, as well as the normal doses over the past week and NOTHING!
A friend of mine swears by Excedrin back & body ( she too use to take celebrex ) and that also give me NO help.
The cost of it for a 1 month supply here is 125.00 which I can't handle.
I did find it in Canada for like 45.00 but my Dr does not want to fax a script out of country - which I can understand.
Has anyone found anything - natural or drug wise that helps to replace celebrex?
