I’m here trying to cope with what this drug is doing to my husband. The more comments I read, the more I feel sadness and empathy for the writers and resentment at and anger towards our “care team” and the medical industry/”profession” in general, which pushes lucrative pills in lieu of more intelligence-intense approaches to dealing with biological problems. My husband was prescribed prednisone twice for a severe to profound sudden hearing loss that has intensified twice in a short time. So it’s not apparently helping.
Based on the mechanism of action, the use of prostaglandin-mediated NSAIDs, including Celebrex, may delay or prevent rupture of ovarian follicles, which has been associated with reversible infertility in some women. Published animal studies have shown that administration of prostaglandin synthesis inhibitors has the potential to disrupt prostaglandin mediated follicular rupture required for ovulation. Small studies in women treated with NSAIDs have also shown a reversible delay in ovulation. Consider withdrawal of NSAIDs, including Celebrex, in women who have difficulties conceiving or who are undergoing investigation of infertility.
After decades of stability from the 1920s to the early 1970s, the rate of imprisonment in the United States more than quadrupled during the last four decades. The . penal population of million adults is by far the largest in the world. Just under one-quarter of the world's prisoners are held in American prisons. The . rate of incarceration, with nearly 1 out of every 100 adults in prison or jail, is 5 to 10 times higher than the rates in Western Europe and other democracies. The . prison population is largely drawn from the most disadvantaged part of the nation's population: mostly men under age 40, disproportionately minority, and poorly educated. Prisoners often carry additional deficits of drug and alcohol addictions, mental and physical illnesses, and lack of work preparation or experience. The growth of incarceration in the United States during four decades has prompted numerous critiques and a growing body of scientific knowledge about what prompted the rise and what its consequences have been for the people imprisoned, their families and communities, and for . society.
