Benefits of Celebrex
People who experience pain and inflammation due to conditions like arthritis, muscle injury, or menstrual periods may find Celebrex® (celecoxib) to be beneficial in relieving their symptoms. This medication belongs to a class of drugs known as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). More specifically, it is a COX-2 inhibitor, affecting a certain enzyme responsible for pain and inflammation.
Although Celebrex is not a cure for arthritis, it can help relieve pain, stiffness, and swelling associated with many different types, including rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis.
