Well another round of nonsense.

Now they took me off the celebrex and put me on oxaprozin. If all the others I have taken haven't worked thus far why are they still trying? Also what are the long term effects of taking large amounts of nsaids over numerous years?

My thing is that I guess I get a tolerance to these because they dont seem to work after awhile. Why try another when this is obviously not working?

They don't know why, but some NSAIDs work better on different people and for different aliments. Dr. B.
