Alternative Medicine for Celebrex
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.
Since 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.
