My neurologist gave it to me for my fibromyalgia pain. I don’t notice that it helps me at all. What it does do is make me very tired. I hesitate to take it at all.
@popolopo Celebrex just took the edge off my pain. Stopped taking it after a couple of months. Having said that, every body reacts differently to the same medication so give it a try for at least a couple of months. If it does not ease your pain, talk to your rheumatologist.
@popolopo – I hear Genacol is very good for pain too. I haven’t tried it because I can’t afford the cost. It is not covered by my health insurance plan in Canada, but Celebrex is.
Haven't tried it. I have an appointment with spine and pain dr tomorrow. Excited to see what they can do
I tool Celebrex after Vioxx was taken off the market.
Both drugs have an increased risk of heart attacks and strokes. Celebrex worked somewhat for me but not nearly as well as Vioxx which killed thousands of patients. I stopped Celebrex and took fentanyl.
Celebrex may increase bleeding and other GI complications.
Fentanyl is a powerful drug that the addicts take. In very minuscule amounts prepared in a medical centre it is used as an anesthetic for some medical procedures

The use of ashwagandhaTrusted Source — also called Indian ginseng, winter cherry, and Poison Gooseberry — dates back more than 3,000 years in traditional Indian medicine systems to treat a wide range of conditions.
Fentanyl is one of the most powerful pain relieving opioids on the market. Yes, attics take it who choose to abuse it or choose to take it illegally. I used the fentanyl patch and changed it every 3 days according to doctors instructions. I never had a problem with it at all. Had no problem getting off it either. Normally, if people take drugs, responsibly, and as they are prescribed, they don’t have a problem, but of course, there are exceptions.
I’m not familiar with any of the things you mentioned and wouldn’t take them unless I checked with a doctor first. They might be dangerous in their own right or interfere with something I am already taking.
Thanks,I didn’t realize that there was a patch,I will ask my doc about it. My only experience with it was when I had a colonoscopy,the doc used it ,worked well.
They have lthey have lollipops too and I think a nasal spray now. I like the patches because they last three days although for a while, my doctor had me change them every two days. I took the brand-name Duragesic at $100 a patch, they get a little costly if you’re taking the brand name which I eventually changed. Doctors are very reluctant about giving out fentanyl.
