What Is Celebrex Used For?
Celebrex (celecoxib) is a medication used for relieving symptoms caused by rheumatoid arthritis and arthritis in adults. Celebrex, like diclofenac, ibuprofen, meloxicam and naproxen, belongs to a class of medications known as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Celebrex has analgesic and antipyretic properties and is thought to have a mechanism of action related to blocking the synthesis of prostaglandin. Specifically, Celebrex is thought to work by blocking the cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) enzyme and not the cyclooxygenase-1 (COX-1) enzyme which is why Celebrex belongs to a class of medications known as COX-2 inhibitors.
Celebrex - Dosage and Cost
After being taken orally, celecoxib levels peak in the plasma after approximately 180 minutes with some delay if taken with a high fat meal. Celebrex is metabolized by the cytochrome P450 system in the liver and has a half-life of approximately eleven hours. The majority of celecoxib is excreted in the feces. For many patients, the recommended starting dose is Celebrex 100 mg twice per day (celecoxib 200 mg daily) but the actual regimen used depends on the judgement of the prescribing medical provider in the context of the health needs of the patient. Celebrex 200 mg capsules are relatively affordable, costing approximately 50 cents per capsule at many pharmacies in the United States. Celebrex coupons may also be available online and it may be possible to get one's insurance plan to pay for the prescription (depending on the coverage). Celebrex is available as Celebrex 100 mg capsules, Celebrex 200 mg capsules and Celebrex 400 mg capsules. Celebrex capsules should be stored at 25° C.
Can I Buy Celebrex Online?
Celebrex is a prescription medication in the United States which means one cannot just buy Celebrex online as the first step is consulting with a licensed medical provider. Additionally, because of this designation, Celebrex OTC is not available to be dispensed by a pharmacy. People who need a Celebrex medication prescription, however, can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe celecoxib generic when appropriate to do so.
Celebrex - Side Effects
Before using Celebrex, it is important to discuss concerns about side effects with one's pharmacist and medical provider. Side effects that can result from Celebrex use include nausea, diarrhea, flatulence, abdominal pain, dizziness, headache and peripheral edema. Celebrex can increase the risk of gastrointestinal bleeding, ulceration, and perforation with serious and even fatal consequences. Celebrex should not be used by people who have had coronary artery bypass graft surgery. Celebrex can also increase the risk of stroke, myocardial infarction and other serious thrombotic events in the cardiovascular system. Celebrex and alcohol should not be taken together. People who have a known hypersensitivity to celecoxib, Celebrex, or other NSAID medications should not use Celebrex.
