What is Celebrex?
Celebrex (celecoxib) is in a class of medications known as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or NSAIDs. Celebrex reduces swelling, which relieves pain caused by arthritis and various other conditions that can cause intense pain. This can help restore quality of life to those suffering from chronic pain caused by inflammatory processes in the body. Celebrex is taken by mouth, usually once or twice a day.
What does Simplefill Provide?
The Simplefill program is designed to help Americans struggling with the high cost of medications for chronic conditions. Managing a chronic illness such as arthritis can be a balancing act that is made all the more difficult by stress. Worrying about how to pay for one’s prescriptions makes dealing with chronic illness more difficult than it already is.
There are many programs that help the uninsured and underinsured afford their prescription medications. Simplefill will search all available Celebrex assistance programs on your behalf to ensure that you get the most help possible paying for your Celebrex prescription.
How does Celebrex Work?
Celebrex is a selective NSAID inhibitor of the COX-2 form of cyclooxygenase, an enzyme that is essential to the production of prostaglandin. The result is a reduction in pain and swelling.
Nonselective NSAIDS (aspirin, for example) inhibit not only the COX-2 but also the COX-1 form of cyclooxygenase. Celebrex does not interfere with any of the functions associated with COX-1. While nonselective NSAIDS can, by inhibiting COX-1, affect the lining of the gastrointestinal tract, blood clotting, and kidney function, Celebrex does not.
It is important to note that Celebrex along with other drugs in the coxib class have been shown to increase the risk of potentially serious cardiac risks in some patients. Celebrex can also effectively treat inflammation caused by painful menstruation. The most common side effects are abdominal pain and nausea.
