    Celebrex (Celecoxib) Information

    Celebrex is a prescription medicine that is able to control acute pain and inflammation. It is a NSAID - non steroidal anti-inflammatory drug.

    It’s indicated for pain and inflammation relief. Celebrex is also marketed under the name Celecoxib. It is recommended to people who deal with severe pain due to arthritis, menstrual cramps and ankylosing spondylitis.

    As a COX-2 inhibitor, Celebrex blocks a given enzyme called COX-2. Unlike other NSAIDs, it targets only COX-2 rather than COX-1 and COX-2.

    Celebrex is produced by Pfizer and we provide it in 100 mg and 200 mg capsules. We also offer high quality generic drugs from various brands. To view these and more of our low priced products, click on the dosage boxes shown above.
