Anyone been on Etoricoxib (Arcoxia)

Hi has anyone been prescribed Etoricoxib? My gp recently prescribed this but they're not really seeming to help the pain at all. I'm on a 60mg pill once a day for about a week now but I'm still having to take lots of paracetamol a day as it's not really doing much. Has anyone else been on this med and has it worked for them? Also does anyone know if it's stronger than other NSAIDs like Naproxen? I find that NSAIDS don't really have much effect on me. Any help would be wonderful thanks

Etoricoxib is an anti-inflammatory painkiller. Since pure or primary FM is supposed to be non-inflammatory, it's not suprising you don't feel any better assuming you have FM. Does your GP think you have something other than FM?

I told him that about fibromyalgia but he said he just wanted to "try all options". All they've done is give me heartburn. I'm also on Sertraline which he said I should also give time to kick in but it's not really helping much pain wise either and it felt like he wasn't really listening to me or what I was saying. I have been assessed and other things like arthritis and neurological conditions have been ruled out so I'm getting a rhematology referall but haven't been officially diagnosed with it yet so idk maybe he's waiting to see?

It was just a bit annoying as I have tried several anti inflammatory painkillers like ibuprofen and naproxen but they haven't worked for me, and paracetamol doesn't do all that much either, but he moved me onto another anti inflammatory because he said he wanted to try all options and not move me onto weak opiates as they can cause dependence and addiction so he basically said tough luck try these and go away. It's all very frustrating sometimes :cry:

Is there a different GP you could see at your practice??? Maybe ask if other patients with similar problems see a particular GP for their appts. Sometimes a different look at things can be what is needed xx

I am actually changing gps as it's impossible to get an appointment and to be honest none of them are really that good unless it's an uncomplicated problem like an infection or skin condition xx
