Celebrex and darvocet

Common Questions and Answers about Celebrex and darvocet


Avatar n tn Do yourself a favour and search for DARVON / DARVOCET on the net and you will be able to find out a lot about it. My own opinion is that it is my own fault - nobody else's and I just have to solve the problem. It is very hard however. Be very wary , rather go for a non-narcotic pain killer and possibly an ergotamine for migraine. Don't fall into the same trap i did.
Avatar f tn Also, in order to keep any flare up pains away she occasionally takes advil, darvocet, or celebrex (not all three together). On saturday her right leg below her knee started to swell up and yesterday it was not only the calf and leg that were swollen but her ankle was swollen too. Today we went to the doctor and he sent her to get a dopler scan to see if there were any blood clots. She got the scans and there were no blood clots found.
Avatar n tn I have a fractured acetabulum, left and right fractures of superior pubic ramus, and inferior pubic ramus. I take Celebrex and 2-4 Tramadols to get through a day. I have a very physical job and have pain that worsens with walking and lifting. I especially have pain turning in bed( which results in lack of sleep) and stairsteps, bleachers,. This has been so long , I am beginning to think I will never get over this injury. Can anyone send me in a direction for recovery?
Avatar f tn I don't see info about it here so I'm thinking it's OK, but would like to hear from anyone who has taken this and can tell me if it works and if there's any risk. He's suggesting Lyrica and/or an epidural. I also need some input on this: I've taken pain killers off an on for a few years for real pain, nothing consistent until this year. I only started to be irresponsible with the pain meds in the past 3-6 months (taking too many and getting multiple scripts).
Avatar n tn I have some arthritis in my neck and some disc degeneration and I take Mobic for the inflamation which helps the joint pain. It works like Vioxx and Celebrex but hasn't been taken off the market so far. Good luck.
Avatar n tn The only reason I am able to make it this time is I stopped a few other meds-Previcid,Zocor and Celebrex. That makes it easier. I also have difficulty with soda or any carbonated drink. They all taste yucky and taste flat. Some foods feel odd to chew. Has anyone else had gastric problems? Will this pass or should I give it up before I further tear up my stomach? Thanks if you have any tips for me.
Avatar f tn I had it all and was taking oxycontin daily and Vicodin or Darvocet up to several times a day to keep the pain tolerable. I went to a pain management doctor (who is an anesthesiologist) because I wanted to get off the narcotics if possible. After the first injection I had about 40% improvement. Two weeks later he did injection #2 but used a different steroid in hopes of a better result. That got me to about 65-70% improvement and off the oxycontin completely.
Avatar n tn My family physician has been treating me for the severe back and leg pain with 4/Darvocet a day, 300mg Celebrex a day, 900 mg Neurontin, and Fexeril 3-10mg/day for about 15 months. My Neurosurgeon has deemed me perm. disabled and I have begun receiving Social Security Disability. The medication my family Dr. has prescribed does not do much for pain control. He recommended seeing a Pain Center Mgmt in my area.
Avatar n tn I suspect the sleepiness problem will diminish once I get used to the Darvocet (or the Vicodin, which I also have left over and, like the Darvocet, I don't remember why it was prescribed in the first place. Comments, anyone?
486512 tn?1208780787 I have lots of pain in my joints and now many muscle spasms, for which I take Celebrex and Methocarbomal. they help a lot, but the pain pills (Darvocette) work for the rest of the pain. Has you doc decided whether or not you have Lupus? I have Lupus (SLE) and Sjogren's Syndrome. I don't have a clue about your lumps. I did see a news blip yesterday about a man with HPV that caused lumps to grow alllllllll over him, to the point of making him look like a tree trunk.
469428 tn?1207205219 I have been on vicodin,neurontin,lyrica,flerexil,I cannot remember what else. Now I am on celebrex and darvocet. I have almost contemplated suicide but I am too sane for that, and I don't want to go to Hell so I guess I have to find some pain relief. I am trying accupuncture next week. Has anyone tried this for neck pain? I also read about drug withdrawal from the opiate's, use xanax during withdrawal it will ease the symptom's of withdrawal. any advice is appreciated!
Avatar n tn They gave me an injection of Toradol, RX for celebrex and Darvocet for pain.I insisted I didn't think it was so serious, but he said he had to rule these things out and suggested I google pulmonary embolism. I DID AND NOW I'M SCARED. One thing that caught my attention as I was "googling" was aortic aneurysm , which triggered my memory, of my Dad telling me "remember, we have a family history of aneurysm", which is one thing that has me scared.
Avatar n tn The remainder is normal with incidental note of probable hemangioma of L3(1.2cm). I tried Motrin, Celebrex and deep tissue massage. The neurosurgeon said there was nothing to fix, people have pain when they get old and sent me away with some Ultram. I went to a Spine doctor who has tried Flexoril, Medrol, Lidoderm, and Topamax. I also progressed from Ultram to Darvocet to Lortab.
Avatar m tn I have severe pain in buttoks region when set down and associated with numbness in my foot and all kind of pain control cannot mask the pain completely and i cannot sit down ???????????????????
Avatar n tn I have talked to the neurosurgeon who did the surgery and he shrugged his shoulders and said I have no idea and sent me back to my neurologist. He gave me a series of injections in both shoulders and the pain stopped for a couple days but then came right back. Then we tried massage therapy, it helps but only for a short period.Then I have to go back to the massage therapist again and again, my insurance will not pay for that.
Avatar f tn at my school, and they did a bunch of blood work and told me that it was probably an allergic reaction to either the e-myecin or the percocet--and that the prednisone was surpressing this reaction. (The knee issue occured 2 days after I stopped e-myecin and prednisone.) This was 4 weeks ago. 5 weeks since I took the e-myecin or the percocet. The dr. at my school prescribed me darvocet, gave me a shot of tordol, and put me on a higher dosage of prednisone.
Avatar n tn I have talked to the neurosurgeon who did the surgery and he shrugged his shoulders and said I have no idea and sent me back to my neurologist. He gave me a series of injections in both shoulders and the pain stopped for a couple days but then came right back. Then we tried message therapy, it helps but only for a short period. And I have tried changing my pillows on my bed and sleeping in different positions and nothing seems to help for long term. What can I do?
Avatar n tn Two days later, I called my doctor and was asked to come in. I was treated with Darvocet and Celebrex. A week later, I returned and was given Hydrocodone. About 3 weeks later, I returned and was given Neurotin and prednisone and told that I didn't need to come back, just continue meds until pain went away. In early June, I once again returned to my doctor who gave me two shots of cortisone (one in each bursa). He said if that didn't work, he'd refer me to an orthopedic m.d.
778803 tn?1244643952 I have some degenerative conditions in my spine, RA, AS and mild sjogrens. I take plaquenil, too, but am not on steroids. I also take relafen, darvocet and flexeril. How are you doing on the meds you take? So far, I am doing ok on mine. I did have to take MTX for almost a year. I hope I don't have to take that path again. The side effects were rough on me. I only had 2 or 3 good days a week.
747443 tn?1233027711 Turned out that on top of RA and bursitis, I had osteoporosis in them. I got relief from darvocet, flexeril, RA meds and osteoporosis meds. It took time but things got better once I was on the combonation.
Avatar f tn I love not having to go out to shop when I hurt and biofreeze is not sold everywhere. I do take pain pills, Darvocet is one I can handle as long as I take Prilosec 30 minutes before hand and eat something when I take it. Hydrocodone is too rough on me - makes me ill. I also use muscle relaxers since my muscles tighten to stabilize my aching joints. I try not to take them during the day, just at night and that does seem to help.
1222368 tn?1266951596 Blood work negative for Lupus and RA. I have small sores in my mouth, which aren't very painful. I am taking 400 mgs. of Celebrex, 2000 IU of Vitamin D, Darvocet 3 times daily, tylenol arthritis as needed, and tylenol PM to help me sleep. I have had cortizone injections in my neck, right hip, and left wrist. I wouldn't say that I am depressed but close to it. My rheumy is nice enough but his assistant laughed at me when I said that I didn't think the Celebrex was working well enough...
482543 tn?1248359021 I had been feeling better but the last 2 days it seems every major joint in my body is hurting so bad. Especially my ankles and wrists. It is like an aching and sharp stabbing pain. Celebrex is not even touching it. So yesterday I didn't take it and instead took my 2 Aleve that I had been taking and it seemed to help a little. I just don't know how long I can go on like this. This morning I really had to force myself to come into work.
1831849 tn?1383231992 So Gilenya remains available but all the Cox-2 inhibitors (save Celebrex) and Darvocet were forced out of existence because they might cause heart disease in high doses or in the elderly. (Aren't these things just more common in the elderly, period?) Does this make sense to anyone? It so, please help me here. I guess it can be hard to find the smoking gun unless there is a willingness to allow the eye to follow the smoke all the way into the barrel.
Avatar f tn I'm so sorry about your son, I'm on sub my self and about a month after I started the sub I had a bad accident on my bike (quad) and hit my back really really bad I didn't want to go to the doctor cause I knew he would put me on pain killers and dind't want to stop the sub and take two steps back, so what I did was I took naproxen 800mg up to 4 times a day I put on hot and cold packs also I tryed celebrex is not addicted and another one is Duraback is a prescription non addicted.
10374 tn?1242244878 pain started and the iritis left. I'm taking celebrex and doing physio last 3 months-still can'twalk more than block without having to stop and rest until the pain subsides. Lately, it's developed into a "dagger' in the back as well as the angina in the chest. By the way, my ECG shows a false ischemia which scares the doc into thinking I'm going to have a cardiac episode. luckily, so far this is not the case-the angiogram(heart x-ray) was normal.
Avatar n tn I was a moderate drinker for many years(but have quit since enzymes elevated). For my r/a I was on methotrextae, celebrex, plaquinil, darvocet, etc. and many others during my 18 plus yrs with it. I've stopped drinking altogether in February.
341953 tn?1209485491 so she gave me anaprox, (aleve) and told me it would help. it didn't. then i tried celebrex [stupid and expensive] then tylenol 3s.....still wasn't helping. so in June of that year, the pain was too much. i felt like i was going to just pass out from the pain. i went to the ER, it took morphine, vicodin and some dilaudid {i think thats how you spell it} to make the pain subside.
186737 tn?1269888260 I am on a fentanyl patch, celebrex, neurontin, and morphine when all that isn't cutting it. I am not taking vitamin C, but someone else mentioned that too the other day, but I can't remember what it was in reference to. So, I am on a hefty helping of pain medications, but still sometimes I am kept up at night with pain. However, I am keeping the fentanyl patch at the lowest possible dose so that I end up being completely without pain and then injuring myself further as a result.
