Celebrex is still on the market.
My husband takes it.
I talked to a nurse at my doctors office this morning and she told me to quit taking my Bextra.
I told her I was not going to stop taking it.
I have 25 pills left and I plan on taking them all.
Instead of taking one pill a day I am going to take one pill every other day.
That way it will last longer and hopefully the pain won't come back too soon.
I also asked the nurse if they had any free sample left over that I could maybe get and she said they had to dispose of all the left over samples and are not allowed to give them out to anyone.
She made it sound like my only other option would be to try Celebrex again or take Tylenol or Aleve. and believe, tylenol and Aleve just don't cut it when it comes to my back pain.
I do have pain meds I can take when it gets really bad, I don't like to take them. It makes me feel funny and I get real sleepy and then when I do go to sleep it makes me have bad dreams. And this is a mild pain medicine.
Thanks for your all your kinds words of support.
I will keep you posted on what I find out. I have an appoitment to see my doctor on the 18th of this month.
Thanks for letting me vent.
