Frequently asked questions about Celecoxib

Celecoxib is a prescription medication used to treat arthritis.

It is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug - also known as NSAIDs - that is used to relieve the pain, tenderness, swelling, and stiffness caused by multiple forms of arthritis. It is also used to treat short-term pain caused by injuries, surgery, and other medical or dental procedures. In some cases, it is even prescribed to treat painful menstrual periods.

Arthritis is a common condition caused by inflammation and swelling in your joints. More prevalent in older individuals, arthritis affects more than 54 million Americans.

Celecoxib is used to treat the symptoms of osteoarthritis (arthritis that is caused by a breakdown of the lining of the joints), rheumatoid arthritis (arthritis caused by swelling of the lining of joints), juvenile arthritis (arthritis in young people), and ankylosing spondylitis (arthritis that mainly affects the spine). It is often used to relieve acute pain caused by injuries and medical procedures and may be used to treat painful menstrual periods (sometimes referred to as dysmenorrhea). It may also be used in combination with surgery or other treatments to reduce the number of polyps in the colon and rectum.

Celecoxib belongs to a family of drugs known as NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). In short, Celecoxib targets COX-2, an enzyme in your body that is responsible for causing swelling, inflammation, and discomfort of the joints. By preventing this enzyme from triggering inflammation, celecoxib can help reduce and alleviate symptoms of arthritis.

While there are some common side effects associated with celecoxib, it is important to remember that your doctor prescribed this drug because they believe that its benefits outweigh any adverse conditions it may cause.

The most common side effects (occurring in more than 2% of people) may include:

Abdominal pain Diarrhea Indigestion Flatulence peripheral edema Accidental injury Dizziness Irritation of the sinus, nose, or throat Upper respiratory tract infection Rash

Let your doctor know if any of these symptoms are severe or don’t go away.

However, some side effects may be serious. Talk to your doctor right away if you experience any of the following:

Headache Pain/swelling/warmth in the groin/calf Signs of kidney problems Pain or difficulty swallowing Symptoms of heart failure (these may include swelling of the feet or ankles, unusual tiredness, or sudden/unusual weight gain).

Celecoxib has been known to raise blood pressure and, in rare cases, can cause liver disease. Get medical help right away if you have any symptoms of liver damage (such as dark urine, persistent nausea/vomiting/loss of appetite, severe abdominal pain, yellowing of the eyes or skin).

Serious allergic reactions are also rare but do occur. Get medical help right away if you notice any symptoms of a serious allergic reaction.

Celecoxib may not be right for everyone. For more information on special precautions and possible adverse effects speak to your doctor.

WARNING: The use of NSAIDs such as celecoxib may increase the risk of serious cardiovascular events such as heart attack and stroke. They may also increase the risk of adverse gastrointestinal events such as bleeding, ulceration, and perforation of the stomach or intestines.

This is not a complete list of celecoxib side effects. For more information on adverse reactions associated with celecoxib, please visit the National Institutes of Health’s DailyMed webpage.

Some people will notice the effects of celecoxib within the first few hours of taking a dose. However, for certain conditions, such as arthritis, it may take up to two weeks of taking celecoxib regularly before you experience the full benefit.

Starting doses of celecoxib vary depending on the condition depending on the nature and severity of each patient’s condition. Generally, the doctor will prescribe the lowest effective dosage for the shortest amount of time, consistent with the individual patient’s treatment goals. For most forms of arthritis, that amount will be 100 mg to 200 mg taken once or twice daily. For other forms of pain, the dose may be as high as 400 mg daily.

When taking celecoxib, make sure you adhere strictly to all instructions given by your doctor or pharmacist as well as any instructions on the packaging label.
