Is there an alternative medicine for celebrex?
Celebrex (celecoxib) belongs to a group of drugs called nonsteroidal
anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). It works by reducing hormones that
cause inflammation and pain in the body.
Celebrex is prescribed for the relief of signs and symptoms of
osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and and for the management of
acute pain in adults. Many people consider switching to a Celebrex
alternative because they are concerned about the possible risks of using
COX-2 inhibitors. Often, people assume that other NSAIDs (including
non-prescription NSAIDs) are safer. However, it is important to remember
that all NSAIDs have been linked to cardiovascular events, such as
heart attack or stroke.
the use of Celebrex and many of the non-prescription NSAIDs
alternatives only treat the symptoms and pain associated with
osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis; one alternative to Celebrex
that is often overlooked are natural supplements that affect the health
issues that cause this pain and inflammation.
