Celebrex is crazy expensive!

I have ddd, and currently have a spuratic siatic pinched nerve. When it's good, it's good. When it's bad, I'm out on the couch with a heating pad and muscle relaxers.. Getting to the point. I have no insurance. Everything is out of pocket. Celebrex is over 200$ a month without insurance! My doctor has been prescribing me pain killers, but quite frankly, I'm over them! After a month of taking them, then not. I'm exhausted, the pain is intensified, and I feel like it take me a week to even out from them.. So I am thinking about asking my doctor for tramadol? And meloxicam instead of celebrex. Also I've been looking into glucosamine vitamins.. Opinions? What do you take? I need help. I'm too young to be taking narcotic pain killers. I wish my doctor would offer me different options but instead I'm googling..
