Did Celebrex, an NSAID, help?

Nope, it didn’t help me that I could tell. I took it for more than a few days. It was more like a few months. I did discontinue it and would not start it again.

Pubmed, a government website has this warning:

“[I]People who take nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) (other than aspirin) such as celecoxib may have a higher risk of having a heart attack or a stroke than people who do not take these medications. These events may happen without warning and may cause death. This risk may be higher for people who take NSAIDs for a long time[/I]”

p.s. Celebrex is the brand name for celecoxib.

Well, these warnings may apply to all nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
