What are the side effects of taking Celebrex?

Stop using celecoxib and call your doctor at once if you have a serious side effect such as:
  • chest pain, weakness, shortness of breath, slurred speech, problems with vision or balance;
  • black, bloody, or tarry stools;
  • coughing up blood or vomit that looks like coffee grounds;
  • swelling or rapid weight gain;

Why did they take Celebrex off the market?

A bottle of Bextra sits next to a bottle of Celebrex at a drugstore in New York. The painkiller Bextra was taken off the market Thursday and the government wants similar drugs to carry the strongest possible warnings about increased risk of heart attack and stroke.

Is Celebrex good for pain?

This medication is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), specifically a COX-2 inhibitor, which relieves pain and swelling (inflammation). It is used to treat arthritis, acute pain, and menstrual pain and discomfort.
