I've been intermittently self-medicating for a year or so with ibuprofen, but my stomach can't handle it, so when I went to see a rheumatologist for the first time last week she prescribed celebrex, gave me some samples and said to give it a few days. I gave it a week and called her back three days ago to ask what to do next. I really want to take something for the pain!
And, now it's Friday night and she never called back and the spectre of prednisone is haunting me. Is that the next option? I'm nursing, which complicates things, and which is why she tried celebrex first (less excretion into milk).
Also, I can't find any info on google but do you think 24 hours after my last celebrex will be OK to take some ibuprofen? I was taking it twice daily.
