Your doctor may be able to give you lots of Celebrex samples. Mine did when I first tried it. My insurance wouldn't cover it either and it gave me some side effects anyway.
My first rx NSAID was meloxicam, which worked for a year. Currently I get some relief with diclofenac.
Does your heart condition allow you to try a new NSAID? You can find a list of prescription NSAID's online and read about each drug individually to get an idea of which you might like to try. You might also find a list of covered ones at Medicare.gov.
Some of the older generics are on the $4 list at WalMart and other pharmacies. You can pick up that list and ask the pharmacists. A good pharmacist can offer great advice.
So sorry the Enbrel caused heart problems for you. These RA drugs are pretty rough in many ways.View Thread
