What is Celecoxib?

Celecoxib (Brand Name: Celebrex) is a prescription medication that helps relieve the pain and swelling of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

It is also used to treat pain in adults (strains and sprains) or pain after surgery, primary dysmenorrhea (painful menstrual cramps), and symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis.

Ankylosing spondylitis is arthritis that affects the spine and is common in young people.

How does Celecoxib work?

Celecoxib relieves arthritis pain by targeting the COX-2 enzyme. The COX-2 enzyme is a protein that is involved in the mechanisms that cause pain and inflammation.

Side Effects of Celecoxib

Side effects can occur when you take any medication. In most patients, no side effects result from taking Celecoxib. The most common minor side effects are:

  • Indigestion

In extreme cases, taking this medication can:

  • Increase your chance of serious heart problems (for example heart attack or stroke).

Please talk to your doctor before taking Celecoxib.

How do I take Celecoxib?
