Pfizer pharmaceutical is one of the leading drug manufacturing companies which have roots all over the world. Celebrex
is one such non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). It’s a pain killer and can be prescribed for pain caused due to arthritis, dysmenorrhea, colonic cramps etc. In the case of Arthritis the chemical that causes inflammation are the high secretion of Prostaglandins in the body. This chemical in large level can also cause fever and swelling in different parts of the body. Celecoxib
which is the active ingredient directly targets the enzyme which produces prostaglandins. Cyclooxygenase 2 enzyme when blocked leads to a reduced concentration of prostaglandins thus helping in reduction of fever and related symptoms such as tenderness, inflammation etc. Celebrex has got an edge over other NSAID pain killers as it does not lead to adverse inflammation of the stomach and intestinal lining if given in limited amount as prescribed by your physician. Few pain medicines have also shown clotting of blood cells which can have adverse reactions in the body whereas Celebrex does not show any such issues.
Apart from the above mentioned use Celebrex has been reported to successfully reduce the polyps which have been triggered due to genetic ailments. F.A.P that stands for familial adenomatous polyposis is a disease in which large tumors can be found in the colon, if not treated timely they can turn itself into malignant growth. If a patient has been diagnosed with FAP the only method that can promise complete eradication of the illness is by removing the colon by surgery. Before the surgery happens Celecoxib can be prescribed along with other drug to control the ailment and provide symptomatic relief. Celebrex is a prescription medicine and obtaining it from drugstore without any prescription can lead to legal issues for the shop owner as well as the buyer. So keep a doctor’s prescription handy with you before you try to get them over the counter or order it online from reputed online pharmacy.
Women who have excessive discomfort during their menstrual cycle can also be given this medicine under the guidance and instruction from their gynecologist. Celecoxib will reduce the cramps caused by excessive amount of prostaglandins production during the period by blocking the enzyme which forms the inflammatory chemical.
The preparation of this drug is found in 50 to 400 mg range and must be stored around 15 to 30C to avoid the damage to its active ingredients and making it useless for further use if it gets damaged by high level of heat. It must be noted this Celebrex and other drugs which have Celecoxib in them will help to take control of arthritis. Thus this medicine is not a cure for any type of arthritic pain. Celecoxib will not stop the progression of ailment but provides symptomatic relief from fever, pain, inflammation in juvenile arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and spondylitis.
Celebrex (Celecoxib) dosage depends on the age, and condition of the inflammation. Discuss your medical history and allergies with your physician so that the doctor can prescribe the appropriate amount and type of pain killer
