I have had ankylosing spondylitis for many many years and I had been on many different types of medicines including Vioxx, Bastra, Mobics, Celebrex, Vicodin, Enbrel and Remicade. Couple of those are actually been taken off the market because of the danger of causing heart attack. I use to take one of those above medicine alone with Vicodin just in case I have more pain than I can bear. The most recent medicine I am on is Remicade and been on it for a couple of years now. it is the best medicine ever. Over time times, I even drop vicodin and was no longer needed while I was on Remicade. Remicade was administer every 6 weeks for me. That works great up until recently, I have change my insurance and it took me 5 months to get the insurance working. At this poing, the remicade in my body had been worn out and I was in extreme pain. the first time I got back on Remicade, It lasted for only 3 weeks, than all my pains came back. I was taken some Mobic and even some vicodin in addition to the Remicade. I felt a little weird, my stomach has completely ack up, because I also had GERD and Ulcer, Mobic just made the damage worst. also, I been having sudden dizziness, headaches and ringing in my ear at all times. Also I felt very tire and week at all time. I was not sure it was caused by the addition medicine I was taken. Just recently I had taken my second Remicade. I thought I would have more luck with the first injection, but not really, the second injection lasted for a little over 2 weeks, even shorter than the first injection. I spoke to my doctor about my issue. He had mention the dizziness, headache and ringing in the head could be causes by my ankylosing spondylitis, Gave me some muscle relaxant medicine for the dizziness and headache. I been on it for a few days, but didn't feel the different. Also, my doctor had also mention about taken some Celebrex if I needed rather than the Mobics.
Sorry for the long history, my main question is to see if someone can give me some suggestions with being on Remicade and Celebrex at the same time? I always worry about taken too much medicine, it can really screw me up, and I really worry about medicine interaction. can someone give me some suggestions please? thank you.
