Celebrex Uses

People with pain and inflammation caused by arthritis, painful menstrual periods, or muscle sprain often find relief by using Celebrex® (celecoxib), a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). This prescription medication comes in the form of a capsule and is generally taken once or twice a day, depending on the condition being treated and other factors.
 
When treating children with this medication, it is only used to treat juvenile rheumatoid arthritis; however, Celebrex can be given to children as young as two years old with this condition. It is not approved for any other use in this age group.
 
Celebrex is also known as a COX-2 inhibitor because it targets a specific enzyme in the body (the COX-2 enzyme) known to play a role in pain and inflammation.
