[IP] Cox-2 drugs

Someone asked a little bit ago what Clebrex was.  It
is an NSAID that is prescribed for pain, arthritis
etc.  It is in many ways just like Advil, Aspirin,
Naprosyn, Aleve.  The big difference is that all of
those drugs can cause gastrointestinal bleeding and/or
ulcers.  Celebrex is a comparatively new drug that
does not have the side effect of causing
ulcers/bleeding.  Otherwise it does the exact same
thing as all the others listed. celebrex is a Cox-2 inhibitor
Cycloxygenase-2 is an enzyme implicated in inflammation and pain. cox-2 is
shorthand for Cycloxygenase-2. it too can cause ulcers and bleeding. it is
less likely to damage your kidneys if you have diabetic nephropathy. spot
