Side Effects
I am having blurred vision. Sometimes walking is diffifult. I have been having bad muscle pains in arms and legs. Can hardly pick my granddaughter up at times. This is terrible. I am pretty sure it is the Avapro, but the doctor doesn't want to say so.. So now I have been prescribed celebrex for arthritis..but I think it all is coming from the Avapro. Where do we go from here? It's very frustrating!! How can a drug company have drugs like this marketed?
