Default Mobic vs Celebrex or Ibuprofen

Hi everybody. My husband has many health conditions. Reactive arthrits being one. In your opinion whch one of these anti- inflammatory's drugs (Mobic, Celebrex or Ibuprofen )are most effective for treating arthitis, yet having the least side effects.

Due to a couple stomach ulcers his doctors told him to avoid Ibruprofen. Yet after a month he doesnt seem to feel mobic helps.

IS Celebrex much better?

Thank You

I've used both Celebrex and Mobic for my arthritis, and I have to tell you, I prefer Celebrex. It did a much better job of pain control; Mobic did nothing for me. As to side effects, they tend to diminish after a time of taking any of the strong NSAIDS. I'm talking about the loopy feeling, drowsiness, etc.

Celebrex is good as long as your husband dont have any heart problems,and yes if a patient has ulcer problems he must avoids ibuprofen and many other NSAID BUT CELEBREX IS A cox 2 inhibitor that is why it is good if your husband has ulcer.

Between a rock and a hard place!
Yes Ibuprofen can lead to GI bleeding but so can Celobrex!
Cox II inhibitors are still NSAID s but a lot of noise made was made re cox IIs and increase of stroke and cardiac events, but not sure what the current thoughts are. Even Ibuprofen increases the risk of stroke and cardiac events id taken for a long time.

Unfortunately to control your husbands pain effectively there will be some risks of drug side effects, but pain control needs to be the priority.

Does he take anything for his previous ulcer history?

Thanks for all the respones and info. He does take a medication daily. Prilosec every morning. They said his ulcers are now healed, yet warned about how many pain meds to take.

Anybody tried Mobic?
