I take it back. Even more meds!

So I'm back on my Celebrex.  My knees have been achy and since I'll be taking Iron and B12 supplements for the next 2 months, why not keep taking the Celebrex!  I went two whole days without swallowing a pill before my doctor called and said I was deficient in Iron and B12.  Crappity crap crap.

I took the first doses last night and was up for 2 hours with stomach cramps, up and down to the bathroom :(  I'm sure it's iron doing it, pretty common side effect.  So crappy!  Maybe I need to add a little more red meat into my diet :)  I eat a ton of spinach and green leafy vegetables though, I don't get it.

I'm hoping for an increase in energy in the coming weeks because of these new meds :)  Not sure it's worth the stomach upset though:/


  1. i hope you are able to take the medicine without getting sick all of the time. isnt there some type of iron you can drink (like a powder form?) i thought i saw a commercial for it.

  2. I took it again last night and I was fine. So I guess that stomach thing wasn't from the iron after all!
