Pain and inflammation caused by conditions like arthritis or muscle strain can be treated with the medication Celebrex® (celecoxib). It comes in capsule form and is taken either once or twice a day, depending on the condition being treated and a person's age, among other factors. Celebrex is generally safe for most people, and side effects, if they occur, are often mild and easily treated.
However, there are some safety precautions with Celebrex to be aware of before beginning treatment. For example, people with severe liver disease, high blood pressure, or stomach ulcers may need to be monitored carefully when taking this drug, or they may need to take a different product altogether.
In addition, in order to ensure your safety with Celebrex, it is important to take the lowest possible dose for the shortest amount of time possible. This will help reduce the chance of side effects.
