Celebrex, also known as Celecoxib, is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug that is used to treat menstrual discomfort and pain, acute pain, and arthritis. It is available in the form of tablets and capsules. Celebrex limits the production of prostaglandins by blocking the enzymes that make it.
Decreasing the level of prostaglandins helps relieve pain and swelling, allowing you to carry out your daily activities comfortably. Celebrex is also used to cure hereditary polyps in the colon as well as juvenile rheumatoid arthritis in children who are over two years of age.
