Were you looking for information about Celebrex? Celebrax is a common misspelling of Celebrex.
Celebrex® (celecoxib) is a prescription medication that is used to reduce pain and inflammation associated with conditions like tendonitis, arthritis, and painful menstrual periods. The drug works by blocking the actions of the COX-2 enzyme, and is part of a class of drugs called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or NSAIDs for short. Some of the most commonly reported side effects of Celebrex are indigestion, diarrhea, and abdominal pain. In most cases, these are minor and easily treated.
The drug comes in capsule form and is typically taken several times a day. However, it is not suitable for everyone. For example, people with asthma, congestive heart failure, high blood pressure, or ulcers may not be able to safely take Celebrex.
