Celebrex and LLLT (bcure)

Hello

I’m New to the forum

I’m 30 years old and have been suffering with chronic knee pain for 1 year. I recently purchased a bcure laser to try and reduce the pain.

I wanted to ask. Will Celebrex (which I currently take daily) diminish the effects of the laser? Or does it make no difference?
