    Recently I read an article about a natural substance called Nexrutine, derived from a tree or something. It is supposed to be effective for pain relief and inflammation, but without a lot of the stomach problems associated with the other Cox-2 inhibitors. Anyone try this or hear of it? Diane

    Anyone? I am especially interested in Cox-2 inhibitors because I am being treated for breast cancer, and the cox-2 inhibitors may help with preventing recurrence. But my stomach can't even handle 50 mg of ibuprofen....Diane

    I'm currently taking mobicox without side effects that I know of, but sure didn't take away the pain/inflammn like vioxx did, but vioxx made me really sick on 2nd day.

    Sorry about your breast cancer. Hope to god you beat it.

    Blessings to you.
