My doctor offered to write me a prescription for Celebrex, which I understand is an NSAID. Is this effective for treating gout flares? There are some nasty risks that I see with it. I'd prefer to try treating my gout naturally but I'm not opposed to trying this if it works.

Welcome to the forum VolsFan! Celebrex is a Cox-2 Inhibitor class of NSAID, which are fairly new to the market. It is important to note that taking any NSAID for gout pain relief is a short term solution. I would be 100% against taking Celebrex long term. The risks of dangerous side effects increase exponentially the longer you take them.

To be honest I'd much prefer to see you get to the point where you can successfully prevent flares and keeping Celebrex as a back up in case a flare does occur. Thats the best case scenario. :D

Thanks Karen! I'm going to just save the Celebrax in case I ever have a flare. I'm intrigued by that "Gout Code" book I might try that and get some Uricel to try and manage this naturally. It really sounds like those prescriptions are nasty.

Vols, that sounds like a great plan. May I ask what you are currently using for natural remedies? I think getting "The Gout Code" and Uricel would be a great first step. :D
