I took celebrex for approx. 8 years. It just seemed not to work as well as it did. Also the price was very expesive. I paid $500.00 for a 90 day supply! That was with insurance. My ortho. MD put me on voltaren, I noted a change in my knee pain in the 1st week. Not to mention I can get a 30 day supply at walmart for $1 with my insurance!

Have taken this Rx for several years and now my kidney function is bad - especially the BUN. I have been taken off and hopefully the kidney problem will improve. In retrospect I probably should not have been taking it for so long.

I have very bad knees and have been advised to have knee replacements. The pain I have been suffering every day has been horrible. This is the only medication out of several tried that has given me any measurable relief - and no side effects as yet.

I have found this medication very effective in banishing the pain of Degenerative Disc Disease and arthritis. Relief in minutes; no side effects evident.

Since I've started taking this drug, I have nearly no pain. If I forget to take my daily dose, I start to feel the pain returning and I instantly remember to take a pill. I have read about the side effects and luckily I haven't had any. I would highly reccomend this drug.

I got so much relief with this drug! My pain doesn't completely go away;however,it works so much better than Celebrex did.

I have been taking it for months. Previous Naisds lost effectiveness. I have not had any bad side effects. I know it is helping because if I stop taking it I am in agony. Then it takes several days to get relief. I have had to stop taking it for a week in order to get steroid injections and I could hardly move when I had to stop taking it.

Amazing how quickly it took my back pain away!

Diclofenac (generic form of Voltaren) has worked very well for me. Less swelling and pain, thus less depression. Can exercise more without so much swelling & pain, thus can get stronger, improving strength, well being & depression.

I've been taking this for arthritis and it works great. I very seldom have bad effects from any med. I get tremendous relief from this. Very satisfied with it.

The worst heartburn I've ever had - and I have always had a bit of GERD. I had lower back surgery (herniated disc) a few years ago and Dr. put me on this to help control the associated swelling and general issues I seem to always have with my back. Works pretty good and better than narcotics.

The severe side effects are not worth taking this drug! Only took 2 days; eyelids severely swollen, severe stomach pain along with abdominal cramping & diarrhea for 12 hrs. Won't recommend to anyone.
