WHAT IS CELEBREX?
Celebrex is part of a family of Cox-2 Inhibitors, which started their introductions in the late 1990s. Cox-2 Inhibitors reduce hormones to block pain and are prescribed to treat osteoarthritis, acute pain and painful menstrual cycles.
CELEBREX SIDE EFFECTS
Common side effects include:
- upset stomach/nausea
- sore throat
More serious and even deadly Celebrex side effects include:
- heart attack
- stomach ulcers
- serious skin reactions
- intestinal problems
Although Celebrex has been linked to heart attack and stroke, it still remains on the market.1
According to the April 7, 2005, FDA Alert, the FDA requested that packaging of Celebrex and other NSAIDS include a boxed warning. The warning is regarding the serious risks of heart attack, stroke, or other cardiovascular events, that may cause death as well as the risk of life-threatening gastrointestinal bleeding.2
