default
Posted on Tue, 5 May 2015
Question: I have been taking Celebrex for 20 years and my doctor took me off and replaced it with Cymbolta because I was concerned about the long term side effects. I'm still in pain and having trouble walking without pain. Are there any other medications I can take to help with the pain on a regular basis?
