Celebrex and tylenol together

Common Questions and Answers about Celebrex and tylenol together


Avatar n tn She has severe arthritis and wonder if it is safe to take celebrex? She got conflict advises from doctors and phamacists regarding taking Celebrex. By the way, she can't take Tylenol due to hepatitis C. Thanks for your help.
Avatar n tn I have a fear of addiction, so I was taking percocet for two weeks and then tylenol 4 for two weeks. I went away and left my percocet, but had four tylelnol 4. I had gone through withdrawal with tylenol 4. I used to not take it for a week to give my body a rest. The withdrawals were only stomach cramps and diarrhea and imodium took care of that. Now I have more withdrawals (I have only been taking the percocet for three months) the worse is the anxiety and goose bump feeling.
Avatar n tn My point here is that everyone has something to offer, including some excellent chemical analysis and research skills and we welcome whatever skills you can offer, including moral support. My personal goal is consumer advocacy. I want to publish as much information and analysis about Tramadol as I can find. If you have something to share, welcome. My personal agenda: I am for personal empowerment through information. I am a lawyer who has done consumer protection class action work.
Avatar f tn Put 3+ types of autoimmune diseases together (one needs to be a thyroid problem) and they label it Autoimmune Syndrome. There are 3 types of AS (I got labeled with type III). So many of the symptoms overlap from one autoimmune disease to the another that it is hard to tell where one begins and the other one starts. Anyway, they thought for a while that I had the beginnings of rheumatoid arthritis with joint pain and some episodes of swelling.
Avatar n tn They ended up taking my pectoral muscle and lower abs muscle to graft me back together. Are you familiar with this type of surgery? Also I am on blood thinners. Is it true that I shouldn't drink any alcohol? My cardiologist said I could have one or two drinks a day, put my pharmacist said NONE! Also my lungs are week and having a test, said I was only 40-50 percent as strong as they should be. I also have a lot of pain in my front chest area, where the boned come together.
1684282 tn?1505701570 I am becoming somewhat frustrated with the way a lot of my colleagues practice medicine. Disenchanted, angry would be the other words that could be used. We all get ostensibly that same training and all of us are supposedly in it to help our patients. So, how come have I been getting so many letters lately on my addiction forum from desperate people unable to quit taking the tramadol pills that their own kind doctors have so freely prescribed for them?
Avatar n tn He was certain that I had TMJ and pressed on my teeth and several parts of my head...which hurt like hell...SO then I was diagnosed with TMJ and he prescribed Celebrex. Long story short, I had been on his prescribed 400 Mg of Celebrex at the time of my recent palpatations, which sent me to the ER. The ENT had recommended that I take one 400 mg capsule a day for one month to reduce the swelling in my jaw which he felt was pinching a nerve and causing my ear to hurt.
Avatar n tn My red blood cells were all clumped together, a formation called rouleaux where the red blood cells look like stacks of coins all stuck together. He explained my fingers were cold and showing signs of clubbing because the red blood cells were not getting through the capillaries in my fingers because they need to go through one at a time, a feat which was not possible due to my clumped blood cells. I also showed signs of MASSIVE candida overgrowth, we are talking a 12/10. It was really bad.
Avatar n tn When you drastically cut the calorie intake you also alter the nutrients and your body goes in survival mode and the essential organs will get the nutrients and the others (hair, skin, nails) will get the left over.
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.
394687 tn?1290924440 I also have RA and I'm on my 2nd round of tx. I take Humira, Methotrexate and Celebrex. I was also told that if I have a major flare that they would have to pull me off treatment. Since they won't let me take Prednisone while on tx for the flares, they started me on a maintenance dose of Celebrex at the time I started tx. This was a recommendation made by Shands at the University Florida.

Avatar n tn He put me on Celebrex (anti-inflammatory for my neck and gave me Zoloft and Xanax for the anxiety. I've been sick much more often in the last six months, probably due to a horrible work environment (new boss). My doctor didn't know how or why my neck has suddenly swollen. But it worries me a lot and my husband is really concerned. I feel like my healthy is spinning out of control. I'm still having severe neck pain and my should is still pretty stiff.
Avatar f tn It's an anti-inflammatory. My mom will take 2 ibuprophens and one tylenol together. Tylenol doesn't do anything for inflammation but offers pain relief, pain relief doesn't do much if there is a lot of inflammation. It is safe - pediatricians suggest the "advil/tylenol flip-flop" for keeping fevers down in children, and I have used it on mine on several occasions.
Avatar f tn NSAID allergies tend to cross react with each other. Stick with Tylenol for a pain reliever if you have to use one. Take care and feel better. God bless.
Avatar n tn I underwent a dual coronary bypass in 1988, and have since been on aspirin therapy. Please understand that my question for you is not a request for a prescription of any kind; that is done by my cardiologist. Studies have ahown that, while aspirin's platelet effect protects people from heart problems, at the same time study groups have experienced significant increases in hemorrhagic stroke incidence, even with dosages as small as 350 mg every other day.
Avatar n tn I read on the web that valuim will double the dose of viox, bextra, and celebrex and naproxin. Then if you take 2 of the above together you double the dose again. I can't take any anti inflamiitory meds any more, my heart races out of my chest. When your blood press spikes, your heart blows up like a baloon, the valves do not stretch, and stay damaged. I think the drug manufacturers are so irrisponsible to pass out cases of those drugs to dr.
211940 tn?1267884866 I am just tired of being tired so I better get it looked at again! I was taking my husbands celebrex and it seemed to sometimes work and sometimes not. So at the risk of the side effects, I stopped taking it. After I have the time to go to the chiropractor and/or get and MRI I will share my diagnosis...if I even get one!
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 His eating habits are all over the board. He prior to this last couple weeks he would eat ( the salt free low protein diet ) like a man twice his size. The last two weeks he can not or does not eat at all. Maybe jello and yogurt but that is all. The Dr increased his enulose and his spirolactone last week, but either that or somthing has just made him throw up all the time, all yesterday and all night last night.
Avatar f tn My nurse had told me I could alternate advil and tylenol, but I did notice she really emphasized using tylenol and tylenol pm, but she didnt completely rule out advil. I have my 1st dr appt on Tues and I will bring this up, Dont misunderstand me I definetly believe you when you tell me motrin is bad, but I think the medical field should really make it a point to also let people know this, that is why I didnt think anything about taking the motrin.
237152 tn?1206654636 I have been researching Topamax and all I can find is info. about seizures and migraines. Why would he give me this, and is it addictive? Anyone have any knowledge?
Avatar m tn He said it was probably just a muscle pull and would be healed in a couple weeks and gave me tylenol 2's and an xray just to be sure.Xray came up totally clean.Then I had a really bad bout of chest pain about 3 weeks after that and was having a real problem breathing.My heart was racing and my chest was hurting and burning.I went to the hospital asap and they said a bad anxiety attack and heartburn.
Avatar n tn Ultram is less addictive than hydrocodone (especially in norcos since norcos usually have 10mg hydrocodone) And ultram is not classified as a narcotic like oxycodone, morphine, hydrocodone etc. However, there are quite a few people addicted to it having a very hard time with the withdrawals b/c it is still an opiate (opioid to be technically correct).
Avatar n tn Nobody's ever had problems with it before. Vioxx and Celebrex inhibit Cox 2. Ibuprofen is non-specific and inhibits Cox 1 mostly and slightly Cox 2. Cox 2 is where the risk comes in. I'm still going to take it. Pretty soon they're going to tell us that aspirin is dangerous. Ha Ha!!!
Avatar n tn I take vicoprofen, because tylenol is not effective for me. the others wear out too fast, and you end up taking more, this combo I take is effective for me and I don't have to take that much. As for vitamins, no iron and no niacin I was told by the doc. antioxidants is fine.
10374 tn?1242244878 i was given some tylenol with codiene for a week and told to use a heating pad on my chest for 6 weeks and quit all my sports and it would go away. yeah, that didn't work, i'm 17 and still get chest pains. it's usually when im stressed out or do strenuous activity. anti-inflamatories usually work to relieve the pain somewhat. i think working the chest muscle helps too in the long run. it builds up the strength so it doesnt have work as hard.
1391401 tn?1280161900 In addition to more Tramodol he gave me Gabapentin and Celebrex. Sorry for the long post. I started taking the Gabapentin at night and it helped right away with the leg pain, enough where I thought I could stop the Tramodol. I only was taking 25mg of Tramodol in the morning and 25mg at night but sometimes a 1/4 of a pill more. I am very sensitive to meds. Long story shorter, I am second full day without Tramodol.
1684282 tn?1505701570 There are better (in my opinion) treatments for chronic pain that are much safer than opioids,such as physical therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, anti-depression medications, and treatment of underlying psychiatric illnesses such as depression and anxiety, dietary and life-style changes, etc. High dose long term opiates have not been shown in multiple studies to improve long term pain scores of chronic pain patients - and that is the most important fact of the whole article.
