Celecoxib is indicated in adults to relieve the signs and symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis.
Celecoxib belongs to a class of drugs called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and specifically to the subgroup known as selective cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitors. Your body produces prostaglandins that can cause pain and inflammation. In conditions like rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis, your body makes more of them.
Celecoxib works by reducing the production of prostaglandins, thus reducing pain and inflammation.
Celecoxib is indicated in adults.
