Suggest Celebrex dosage for pain relief - Online Doctor Chats
please tell me how I can be of help
Should I administer antihystamine?
Yes you should
I have oral (pills). How many - 1 or 2?
and from your description I feel you might also be having some infection
it is best to take an antibiotic too
you can take 1 right now
and see how it goes
which antihistamine do you have?
Celebrex is not an antibiotic
it is for the pain
Can you tell me the generic name?
is it cinnarazine?
She has two Celebrex left - need to re-fill. There is no antbiotic available.
She can take the celebrex if she has pain, otherwise it is not needed
Equate Allergy relief will work fine
Yes, I just found out too
She can take that antihistamine without any issues
she might feel a bit drowsy
that is expected
as for the antibiotic, I would prefer something like cefixime(Generic name) 200 mg twice a day for 5 days
you need to go back and read what I sent you in its entirety so you understand her long-term issues. She must take the Celebrex for arthritis pain.
If you can get your family doctor to prescribe that, it would be great
I'll get an appointment this afternoon.
I did read the entire details my dear.. I am terribly sorry, if I sounded different
She can take her celebrex,
but once in while, if she does not have any pain she can skip it as well
She always has sever pain without it.
Okay, in that case she does need to take them
and as you rightly said, she will need a refill her
I feel that she had a bad reaction to the Tramadol, but she hasn't taken any for over a week and the Celebrex was resumed mid-week.
Continue applying caladryl
It is possible that she had a strong reaction to tramadol
I too am alergic to it!
Please ask her to take the antihistamine
that will take care of the allergy
you can give Equate Allergy Relief 25mg, two to three times a day for 3 days
I am advising an antibiotic because of the unusual presentation, generally the allergic reactions are widespread
and the itching and rashes don't wax and wane
and moreover the scratching leads to infection
Hope this makes things clear
Ok. So we see the family doctor, refill the Celebrex, get cefiximine also, and administer allergy relief (1 or 2) three times daily for three days.
Administer allergy relief 1 tablet thrice a day for 3 days
It is good that you are consulting with her doctor
Thanks. How can I print this conversation?
a physical exam will tell us if there is indeed any infection
if there is no infection then she does not need the cefixime
You can print this conversation by copying the entire text onto a word document

For future reference, what is the cefiximine similar to?
from there you can print it just like any other document
Thanks for the print help, too.
Cefixime is similar to penicillin or amoxycillin
only better and in tablet form
Ah. Great to know. I'm allergic to p-cillin. Is this a good substitute?
If you are allergic to penicillin, then it is best to avoid cefixime for her as well
