Hi Memeto,

 

Oh man sorry to hear about your nosebleeds. I have never heard of that side effect before with Celebrex. The coumadin will play a role in it though. Are you able to get them stopped right away?

 

If it continues through to tomorrow, I suggest you call your provider. They may need to check you PT and make sure your level of coumadin is therapeutic.

 

Hang in there,


Warm and gentle hugs,

Mememto,

Right after I started taking an adult size aspirin everyday (due to atrial fibrillation), I was experiencing nosebleeds. They were easy to stop, but I did get one a day for a couple of weeks. Each day the bleed was less and less and now it's been a while since I got one. Have you been on coumadin long?

 

I'm with Sweet - if you can't get them to stop easily and they persist, please go see your doctor.

 

Big Hugs,
