Default re celebrex

I took Vioxx which is much like Celebrex and it worked right away for me to alleviate pain. The only prob is that it also created chest pressure which turned to chest pain so had to discontinue it esp. when went off the market.

I think because Celebrex is a Cox inhibitor and Nsaid type of drug that it should work for the period of time that you're taking it like however many hours it's supposed to last. I don't think you need a build up to happen in your system to "feel" benefits. May just be that it doesn't help.

Vioxx worked really superbly for my cramps and my DDD but not any of the other type of pain that I had.

good luck~ sometimes it's just trial and error, trial and error ... until something clicks!
