Buy Celebrex (Celecoxib) Online 100mg 60 Tablets 

Celecoxib is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). Celecoxib belongs to the group of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medicines used to treat osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and other mild to moderate pain conditions.

1. WHAT CELECOXIB CAPSULES ARE AND WHAT IT IS USED FOR

The name of your medicine is Celecoxib 100mg and 200mg Capsules (called celecoxib capsules throughout this leaflet). Celecoxib capsules are used for the relief of signs and symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and ankylosing spondylitis in adults.

Celecoxib capsules belong to a group of medicinal products called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID), and specifically a sub-group known as (COX-2) inhibitors. Your body makes prostaglandins that may cause pain and inflammation. In conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis your body makes more of these. Celecoxib capsules acts by reducing the production of prostaglandins, thereby reducing the pain and inflammation.

2. WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE YOU TAKE CELECOXIB CAPSULES

You have been prescribed celecoxib capsules by your doctor. The following information will help you get the best results with celecoxib capsules. If you have any further questions please ask your doctor or pharmacist.

Do not take celecoxib capsules

  • if you are allergic to celecoxib or any of the other ingredients of this medicine (listed in section 6)
  • if you have had an allergic reaction to a group of medicines called “sulphonamides” (e.g. some antibiotics used to treat infections)
  • if you currently have an ulcer in your stomach or intestines, or bleeding in your stomach or intestines
  • if as a result of taking acetylsalicylic acid or any other anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving medicine (NSAID) you have had asthma, nose polyps, severe nose congestion, or an allergic reaction such as an itchy skin rash, swelling of the face, lips, tongue or throat, breathing difficulties or wheezing
  • if you are pregnant. If you can become pregnant during ongoing treatment you should discuss methods of contraception with your doctor
  • if you are breast-feeding
  • if you have severe liver disease
  • if you have severe kidney disease
  • if you have an inflammatory disease of the intestines such as ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease
  • if you have heart failure, established ischaemic heart disease, or cerebrovascular disease, e.g. you have been diagnosed with a heart attack, stroke, or transient ischaemic attack (temporary reduction of blood flow to the brain; also known as “mini- stroke”), angina, or blockages of blood vessels to the heart or brain
  • if you have or have had problems with your blood circulation (peripheral arterial disease) or if you have had surgery on the arteries of your legs

Warnings and precautions

Talk to your doctor or pharmacist before taking celecoxib capsules

  • if you have previously had an ulcer or bleeding in your stomach or intestines,
    (Do not take celecoxib capsules if you currently have an ulcer or bleeding in your stomach or intestine)
  • if you are taking acetylsalicylic acid (even at low dose for heart protective purposes)
  • if you use medicines to reduce blood clotting (e.g. warfarin)
  • if you are using celecoxib capsules at the same time as other non-acetylsalicylic NSAIDs such as ibuprofen or diclofenac. The use of these medicines together should be avoided
  • if you smoke, have diabetes, raised blood pressure or raised cholesterol,
  • if your heart, liver or kidneys are not working well, your doctor may want to keep a regular check on you
  • if you have fluid retention (such as swollen ankles and feet)
  • if you are dehydrated, for instance due to sickness, diarrhoea or the use of diuretics (used to treat excess fluid in the body)
  • if you have had a serious allergic reaction or a serious skin reaction to any medicines
  • if you feel ill due to an infection or think you have an infection, as celecoxib capsules may mask a fever or other signs of infection and inflammation
  • if you are over 65 years of age your doctor may want to keep a regular check on you

As with other NSAIDs (e.g. ibuprofen or diclofenac) this medicine may lead to an increase in blood pressure, and so your doctor may ask to monitor your blood pressure on a regular basis.

Some cases of severe liver reactions, including severe liver inflammation, liver damage, liver failure (some with fatal outcome or requiring liver transplant), have been reported with celecoxib. Of the cases that reported time to onset, most severe liver reactions occurred within one month of start of treatment.

Celecoxib capsules may make it more difficult to become pregnant. You should inform your doctor if you are planning to become pregnant or if you have problems becoming pregnant (see section on Pregnancy, breast-feeding and fertility).

3. HOW TO TAKE CELECOXIB CAPSULES

Always take this medicine exactly as your doctor or pharmacist has told you. Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure. If you think or feel that the effect of celecoxib capsules is too strong or too weak, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.

Your doctor will tell you what dose you should take. As the risk of side effects associated with heart problems may increase with dose and duration of use, it is important that you use the lowest dose that controls your pain and you should not take celecoxib capsules for longer than necessary to control symptoms.

Celecoxib capsules should be swallowed whole with a drink of water. The capsules can be taken at any time of the day, with or without food. However, try to take each dose of celecoxib capsules at the same time each day.

Contact your doctor within two weeks of starting treatment if you do not experience any benefit.

For osteoarthritis the usual dose is 200 mg each day, increased by your doctor to a maximum of 400 mg, if needed.

The dose is usually:

  • one 200 mg capsule once a day; or
  • one 100 mg capsule twice a day.

For rheumatoid arthritis the usual dose is 200 mg each day (taken in two divided doses), increased by your doctor to a maximum of 400 mg (taken in two divided doses), if needed.

The dose is usually:

  • one 100 mg capsule twice a day.

For celecoxib capsules 200mg only:

  • The dose of 200mg (taken as one 100mg capsule twice a day) cannot be achieved with celecoxib 200mg Capsules, hard. Please consult your doctor.

For ankylosing spondylitis the usual dose is 200 mg each day, increased by your doctor to a maximum of 400 mg, if needed.

The dose is usually:

  • one 200 mg capsule once a day; or
  • one 100 mg capsule twice a day.

Kidney or liver problems: make sure your doctor knows if you have liver or kidney problems as you may need a lower dose.

The elderly, especially those with a weight less than 50 kg: if you are over 65 years of age and especially if you weigh less than 50 kg, your doctor may want to monitor you more closely.

You should not take more than 400 mg per day.

Use in children: celecoxib capsules are for adults only, it is not for use in children.

If you take more celecoxib capsules than you should

You should not take more capsules than your doctor tells you to. If you take too many capsules contact your doctor, pharmacist or hospital and take your medicine with you.

If you forget to take celecoxib capsules

If you forget to take a capsule, take it as soon as you remember.

Do not take a double dose to make up for a forgotten dose.

If you stop taking celecoxib capsules

Suddenly stopping your treatment with celecoxib capsules may lead to your symptoms getting worse. Do not stop taking celecoxib capsules unless your doctor tells you to. Your doctor may tell you to reduce the dose over a few days before stopping completely.

If you have any further questions on the use of this medicine, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
