I got hit by a speeding car in 1977...I ended up right femur broken, severe dislocation of left knee, broken left tibia, fractured pelvis at the right femur joint, fractured pelvis at the bottom vertebrae, fractured spine at the bottom vertebrae and a fractured skull. I can walk okay, ride a bicycle and can do anything anyone else can do, but I experience pain everyday. I was prescribed Mobicox, along with narcotic analgesics for decades. I started getting chest pains so bad, I thought I'd have a geart attack. My doctor did every test there is, and couldn't find out what was causing these pains.After personal research on the internet, I found out that Mobicox is a coxx2 inhibitor...same thing as Vioxx. Vioxx killed people and has class action law suits against the makers of it. Same thing goes for Mobicox. Pepsi = Coca-Cola, tomatoe = tomato. Same EDIT, different pile so to speak. After suggesting that Maybe this crap Mobicox, that never really did any damn thing to speak of anyway, is cxausing this. She paused with her back towards me for what seemed like a few minutes, then turned around and told me to just quit taking the Mobicox. After making sure I wouldn't get dope sick due to withdrawals, and I'd rather have a heart attack than go through dope sickness again...SERIOUSLY, I quit the Mobicox. Four days later the pains had gradually but completely disappeared forever. I should bill myself for diagnosing and prognosing my own self. I WISH. The moral of this story is, EDIT

  • why did you continue to take it? Most of us, if a medication isn't helping or doesn't appear to be helping talk to our doctors and discuss not continuing the medication. I know that I have done that with a few different medications over my years in pain management.
    I don't want to take something that isn't beneficial , nor do I want to take more medications than I have to.
