I have celebrax in 200 and 100 for RH. which I am suppost to take 200 a day but have only used on flare-up for years.
Please help Faye
Well, it would be difficult to comment specifically on the situation without knowing the relevant clinical details. I would suggest discussing the situation in detail with your treating doctor. If need be, opinion from a pain management specialist may be sought.
Hope this is helpful.
