Severe allergy to sulfa drugs as child. Have taken Imitrex and hctz for years off and on w no prob. Would I be ok taking celebrex (celecoxib)?
Probably: Although the sulfur molecule is in Celebrex (celecoxib), (celecoxib) only a few people with allergies to sulfa antibiotics also react to Celebrex (celecoxib). The allergy appears to be related to a special form of sulfur at the molecular level. This form isn't present in non-antibacterial meds with sulfur in them.

Mom was prescribed celebrex (celecoxib) for siatica pain, did not take after reading terrible side effects, is drug safe or is physical therapy be better choice?
Pretty Safe: Celebrex (celecoxib) is a poor pain reliever but a good anti-inflammatory. However if it does not help you may want to see if her doctor can prescribe her a stronger anti-inflammatory medicine or even a Medrol dose pack (steroid). If physical therapy and these don't help, then evaluation by a spine specialist would be warranted.See 2 more doctor answers
