Celebrex

Celebrex is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID ) used in the treatment of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, acute pain, painful menstruation and menstrual symptoms, and to reduce numbers of colon and rectum polyps in patients with familial adenomatous polyposis. It is marketed by Pfizer under the brand name Celebrex. In some countries, it is branded Celebra. Celebrex is available by prescription in capsule form.

Celebrex, a selective cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitor, is classified as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). Celebrex is used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP). Because of its lack of platelet effects, celebrex is not a substitute for aspirin for cardiovascular prophylaxis. It is not known if there are any effects of celebrex on platelets that may contribute to the increased risk of serious cardiovascular thrombotic adverse events associated with the use of celebrex. Inhibition of PGE2 synthesis may lead to sodium and water retention through increased fluid reabsorption in the renal medullary thick ascending loop of Henle and perhaps other segments of the distal nephron. In the collecting ducts, PGE2 appears to inhibit water reabsorption by counteracting the action of antidiuretic hormone.

Symptoms of overdose include breathing difficulties, coma, drowsiness, gastrointestinal bleeding, high blood pressure, kidney failure, nausea, sluggishness, stomach pain, and vomiting.
