What are the side effects of Celebrex?

Why was celebrex taken off the market a few years ago due to side effects and what have they done now so those side effects don t occur. I have fybromoalga( sp?) and arthritis and degenerative disc disease. I had been managing with hydrocordone but it made me too sleepy and I only took it if I had a fybro attack, to control severe back pain and arthritis in my knee. I am only 66yrs and I feel like 90yrs. Celebrex has helped me tremendously and now take no more that one hydrocordone a day. What were the side effects the labs got rid of?

Hello,

You have to refrain from taking alcohol and need to do exercise daily and Celebrex can increase the chances of fatal gastric bleeding and fatal heart attack by many folds. Hydrocodone is more potent opioid based painkiller.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
