I have a shredded knee- damage to ACL, MCL and cartilage. When I "pop" it out, I can barely put weight on it, my knee swells up and I am pain. Over the past two years, friends with health insurance have given me some vioxx and bextra- finally got a prescription this months for 10mg Bextra. Been on a week and has really helped my knee. But this morning I noticed small itchy red bumps on my elbows. Will probably take myself off the drug. Bummed to have spent $100 on a prescription that I won't finish, and to go back to pain. I have had minor allergic reactions in the past to amoxycillin, doxycline- seems like this might be a minor indicator for reactions to bextra. I seemed to do just fine with Vioxx, wish it wasn't off the market. I'm sure it is just a matter of time before bextra and celebrex get linked to heart problems as well.
