Comments for this study:
gypsey (1 year ago):
I am 66 years old, female. About a month ago I was prescribed celebrex twice a day for my back pain. Celebrex has not decreased my back pain, but shortly after I started taking it, I noticed some memory loss. I had problems finding my words, my husband had noticed it, but did not say anything. Finally I decided to stop the Celebrex and noticed that I had less problems finding my words.
I am glad I read this research, as I was really thinking I was losing my mind.
