CLASS and MECHANISM of Action
Generic Celebrex is a drug approved for the treatment of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, pain, menstrual cramps, and colonic polyps.
Generic Celebrex works to relieve arthritis pain by targeting a certain enzyme in the body. An enzyme is a protein that causes chemical changes in other substances in the body. The enzyme that Generic Celebrex targets is called COX-2. The COX-2 enzyme plays a key role in causing both pain and inflammation.
The body also makes an enzyme called COX-1. This enzyme helps protect the lining of the stomach. Most pain relievers work by blocking the actions of both COX-1 and COX-2.
Generic Celebrex is different because, when taken at suggested doses, it targets the COX-2 enzyme, but not the COX-1. For this reason, doctors refer to CELEBREX as a COX-2—specific inhibitor.
Active Ingredients: celecoxib
Inactive Ingredients: lactose, magnesium stearate, croscarmellose sodium, edible inks, gelatin, povidone and titanium dioxide.
