I took Celebrex for a very painful torn rotator cuff and didn't find it effective. I was surprised to see the innocuous seeming Visine on this list; I never use it because I'm convinced that crimson enhances my green eyes. Actually I hesitate to use any medications. Mr. Nag says I'm like Granny Clampett on The Beverley Hillbillies, preferring to use home remedies (nothing involving possum innards though). A couple of glasses of red wine usually cures what ails me; if not at least I stop giving a damn.
