Customer Question
I am prescribed celebrex two...
I am prescribed celebrex two x a day 200 each mg. I also have been prescribed voltaren 3 mg to put on neck 3x daily. Is that too much NSAID? I take the celebrex daily but only use voltaren on days that my head is hurting. I am on this for cervicogenic migraines. So it may be a couple days a week.

You may want to speak to your doctor about switching to something other than either Voltaren or Celebrex. I would say stick with the drug that is helping you the most at this time. As for the other one, you may want to have it switched. On weeks were you have more migraines, it may be too much NSAID. The biggest risk would be stomach problems, such as ulcers.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
