Which is better? Ibuprofen or Celebrex?

Various studies performed to compare these drugs have found that Celebrex is more potent in treating muscle and bone pain.

Does Celebrex cause weight gain?

Weight gain is one of the relatively rare side effects of these tablets. The cause is unknown, but some clinical studies have noted that 0.1-1.9% of people gain weight after prolonged use.

What is the most dangerous downside of Celebrex?

The adverse gastrointestinal disturbances, e.g., ulcerations, perforations of intestines and stomach and bleeding, are the dangerous and potentially fatal downsides of long-term use.

Does Celebrex increase the incidence of heart issues?

An earlier clinical study has found that it increases the incidence of heart disease. This finding led the company to withdraw from the market. Since then, its use is cautioned in heart patients. If you are a heart patient or are exposed to cardiac risk factors, inform your healthcare provider.

After how much time should I expect improvement from using Celebrex?

Celebrex works very fast. For most people, the effects become noticeable within hours, while others may observe improvement after days. If no improvement is noted after 1-2 weeks, stop using it and consult a doctor for some alternative.

Which is the best time to take Celebrex capsules?

Timing doesn't matter as long as you are taking it at the same time every day. However, to avoid stomach upsets, it is a good option to take it with a meal.

Can I stop using the Celebrex capsules immediately?

A sudden stoppage is not recommended as it can worsen the side effects if you are experiencing any. Do so as advised by the doctor.
