Can you tell me what medicine are you asking about?
Please enter chat
Is it celebrex?
Do you still get any epigastric pain or any other gastric symptoms
no, none atall
You may use an anti inflammatory preferably one lcelebrex which has got a lesser tendency
what is celebrex?
Preferably Celebrex which has got a lesser tendency to cause duodenal ulcer
can I get it over the counter?
Celebrex contains the drug celecoxib
No you cannot get it over the counter
You can occasionally use over the counter Advil in dose of 200mg but taking celecoxib would be preferable because it is safer with respect to earlier history of duodenal ulcer
so I need to see my G.P then, why has he not already recommended it for me, that's not a fair question then I think!
Celecoxib is a drug which is not given in certain conditions for example patients with coronary artery disease.Your GP would be able to decide if you are a suitable candidate to get celecoxib.
I will try advil but see my g.p. with a view to celbrex.
That would be the right approach
I had no symptoms when the perforation occurred nor did I tae any mediction, I amd now otherwise healthy individual.
13 years is a pretty long period and whatever caused the perforation at that time may not be relevant at present.Considering that it was not a drug induced perforation you should be OK taking Advil
Thank you for your advice, is Advil obtained over the counter?
Yes.It can be had OTC
Many thanks indeedI will sign of now.
