Celebrex and hair loss
i am a female, 69 years old. I have taken Celebrex or Celecoxib (200 mg, 1 time daily) for the last 16 years. It works well for me as far as reducing my arthritis pain. Celecoxib is the only prescription drug I have taken in the past 3 years. I began losing my hair in 2016 and lost a significant amount. I stopped the Celecoxib 8/26/16. As soon as I discontinued the drug, the hair loss decreased. 6 months later I have re grown most of my hair. Yea! The problem is my arthritis has really flared up and I was feeling more pain. It even affects my ability to work out at the gym. I have begun taking 200mg every other day since 6/27/17 hoping I will fool my body and it won’t start losing hair again. I doubt this will work and I would really like to take the medication every day, but, I don’t want to be bald either. I am now confronted with Vanity vs. Mobility. Is there anything I could do to stop the hair loss and still take the medication daily? HELP!!!
Relatively free of pain
I suffer from arthritis in the knees with pain if I go up stairs. Cannot run but walking is ok. I like to play tennis twice a week and to do that ( I am 77 yrs old) I take one 200mg celebrex pill the night before I am going to play and I am relatively free of pain for that day. However the pain is stronger after I stop taking the pill. I have no measurable side effects but I only take two pills a week and put up with the pain on 5 days out of seven.
Live with the pain
I took celebrex one time two days ago and my head just stopped hurting, my stomach cramps and my heart rate increased. I will live with the pain because I will not take this med ever again.
