What is Celebrex

One of the most efficient medications designed to treat the symptoms of arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis belongs to the category of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID). This is Celebrex (Celecoxib). Rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis and osteoarthritis cause tenderness, pain, stiffness and swelling in spine and joints. Celecobix successfully fights against all these symptoms.

Actually, Celebrex (Celecoxib) is a COX-2 inhibitor and stops the production of the substance in a human organism that is responsible for pain and inflammation. Due to croscarmellose sodium – a special inactive ingredient, this medication is absorbed quickly into the human system and doesn’t cause any digestive problems. Nowadays, Celecoxib is widely used as a painkiller during menstrual periods, dental procedures, after surgeries and injuries. What patients should pay special attention to is that this medication should be used for a limited time period.

Nevertheless, even though Celebrex (Celecoxib) is highly efficient in treating symptoms of arthritis, it’s vital to be careful when using it.
Celebrex is produced by Pfizer company. Its production was approved several years ago in 2008 (December 31) by FDA. If the patient uses the medication to treat rheumatoid arthritis or arthritis, he is offered the drugs in several dosages. These are 50mg, 100mg, 200mg and 400mg. Which dosage will suit a particular patient depends on the pain and inflammation level he experiences. A doctor is to assess the condition of the patient and prescribe the suitable dosage. Generally, specialists recommend the lowest effective dose of Celebrex.

Anyway, the starting dose ranges from 200mg to 400mg. It should be taken daily. Yet, if the patient experiences an acute goat, he should take an 800mg pill once, follow it with a 400mg pill the next day, and then take a 400mg pill twice a day for an entire week.
Celebrex (Celecoxib) was clinically approved to provide great pain and inflammation relief for an entire day. Besides, it makes physical functions less tense and painful, impressively reduces stiffness. These are all symptoms of arthritis and some related dysfunctions.

Other NSAID drugs including the so widely acquired ibuprofen cause stomach pains, nausea, vomiting. Celebrex meanwhile does not cause any of these side effects. Yet, pharmacists warn to take the medication with either milk or food not to experience any upset stomach. Smaller dosages (200mg) can be taken with or without food, yet higher dosages are strictly prescribed to take with food.

If the patient is to pair Celebrex with some other NSAID drug, let it be aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, etc., a very low dose of that drug is to be taken. Otherwise, he may experience intestinal and stomach ulcers.
FDA and multiple tests have approved the efficacy of Celebrex (Celecoxib) in treating symptoms (pain and inflammation) of arthritis. It also serves as a serious painkiller, yet should be taken with extreme care not to cause a side effect. This medication is also forbidden for nursing mothers as it easily passes into breast milk and can harm the baby. Follow the doctor’s prescription and those stated in the drug’s instruction to get the most out of your Celebrex treatment.

Celebrex reviews

I am 38 years and I am excruciated by a pain from intervertebral hernias L4-L5, L5-S1. I forgot what it’s like to live without pain. I tried a lot of pain medications. Celebrex proved to be the most effective. Took first an elevated dose (as the doctor prescribed) 2 capsules of 200 mg. Then 1 capsule 200 mg in the morning and 1 capsule 200 mg in the evening. Very pleased with the result, the pain became much more moderate and became tolerable. I wanted to take a break and stopped drinking capsules, but pain returned after two days as strong as before. I had to take 2 capsules 200 mg again. I’ve been on this treatment for 3 months without break. As for side effects I have only swollen face in the morning, but it goes through in an hour or so. It is not very cheap to buy medicines on a regular basis, but I have not discovered anything more effective that Celebrex yet. I also want to add that this is not advertising, this is my personal case. During my illness (2 years already), I often communicated with people with the same problem and realized that there is no universal medicine, someone helps this drug, it doesn’t to others. Just listen to your body. Good luck.

I was prescribed Celebrex to treat my radiculitis. Taking into account my chronic pancreatitis, the doctor prescribed me this type of drug, because of soft effect comparing to others. The medicine removes pain and inflammations just perfectly. So after 3 days I could already lead a normal life, forgetting about the disease. There are a lot of side effects in any drug, so you should take them into account when you are going to take Celebrex.

It works for the inflammation of my neuroma / foot pain, however, it makes me tired all the time and I seem grumpy – LOL. Also, after being in it for a month, when I decided to go, my legs and ankles really had major water retention. So, maybe when you get out of it, it is a better idea not to stop for once, but slow down so that the body can adjust. The side effect of getting out of this stuff and drowsiness is why I rated it low. Otherwise, it works for inflammation!

Celebrex has been the only thing to help me with my lupus pain. I always have pain, my whole body. We have not been able to lower inflammation. In few month ago I changed rheumatologists, she changed my medications and immediately pain was reduced! I let myself run this week for the first time! Celebrex has helped me enormously!

Hello everyone, got knee osteoarthritis for years. The pain got so bad that I could only do a minimum of exercise and was waking up in pain. Ibuprofen helps but not mutch. With Celebrex 200mg twice a day, I am having about 90% pain reduction. Now I’ve got no problem going up and down stairs. It’s not a cure, but close!

I’m 62 and I’ve had arthritis since the early 00s. I only take Celebrex when it is really painful, especially in my hands. Celebrex begins to relieve pain immediately and within hours I feel like I’m 21 again! It’s a miracle medicine for me!

Pill every day is very convenient. It is not as difficult as the stomach and intestines. It works as well as Aleve or Ibuprofen if taken every 6 hours.

It has generally been effective in treating osteoarthritis pain. For me it worked remarkably better than meloxicam. I have taken it as a necessary basis for at least 5 years and have had no appreciable side effects.

I have extremely painful periods. I’m talking about pain so bad I cry and I want to go to ER. I was given this to help with arthritis. And it just happened to start the same day, so I took one and are feasible now I’m not bent over crying. Do not get me wrong it still hurts but not nearly as bad.
