Indication: For relief and management of osteoarthritis (OA), rheumatoid arthritis (RA), ankylosing spondylitis, acute pain, primary dysmenorrhea and oral adjunct to usual care for patients with familial adenomatous polyposis
Celecoxib, a selective cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitor, is classified as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). Celecoxib is used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP). Because of its lack of platelet effects, celecoxib is not a substitute for aspirin for cardiovascular prophylaxis. It is...

Mechanism of Action:
The mechanism of action of celecoxib is believed to be due to inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis. Unlike most NSAIDs, which inhibit both types of cyclooxygenases (COX-1 and COX-2), celecoxib is a selective noncompetitive inhibitor of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) enzyme. It binds with its polar sulfonamide side chain to a hydrophilic side pocket regi...

Absorption: Well absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract. When taken with a high fat meal, peak plasma levels are delayed for about 1 to 2 hours with an increase in total absorption (AUC) of 10% to 20%.
Protein binding: 97%, primarily to albumin and, to a lesser extent, a1-acid glycoprotein.
Biotransformation: Hepatic. Celecoxib metabolism is primarily mediated via cytochrome P450 2C9. Three metabolites, a primary alcohol, the corresponding carboxylic acid and its glucuronide conjugate, have been identified in human plasma. These metabolites are inactive as COX-1 or COX-2 inhibitors.
Route of elimination: Celecoxib is eliminated predominantly by hepatic metabolism with little (<3%) unchanged drug recovered in the urine and feces.
Half Life: Approximately 11 hours.
Clearance: 500 mL/min
Toxicity: Symptoms of overdose include breathing difficulties, coma, drowsiness, gastrointestinal bleeding, high blood pressure, kidney failure, nausea, sluggishness, stomach pain, and vomiting.
Affected organisms: Humans and other mammals
Food interaction:
Taking this product with a high-fat meal will delay the Cmax, but total absorption will be increased by 10 to 20%.
Take without regard to meals.
Drug interaction:
VilazodoneSelective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors may enhance the antiplatelet effect of NSAID (COX-2 Inhibitor). To minimize the risk of bleeding associated with this combination, consider using alternative analgesics, when appropriate, and/or addition of an gastroprotective agent, such as a proton pump inhibitor for the time that combined selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRIs) and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) is necessary.
TrandolaprilThe NSAID, Celecoxib, may reduce the antihypertensive effect of Trandolapril. Consider alternate therapy or monitor for changes in Trandolapril efficacy if Celecoxib is initiated, discontinued or dose changed.
TolbutamideTolbutamide, a strong CYP2C9 inhibitor, may decrease the metabolism and clearance of Celecoxib. Consider alternate therapy or monitor for changes in Celecobix therapeutic and adverse effects if Tolbutamide is initiated, discontinued or dose changed.
TretinoinThe moderate CYP2C8 inhibitor, Celecoxib, may decrease the metabolism and clearance of oral Tretinoin. Monitor for changes in Tretinoin effectiveness and adverse/toxic effects if Celecoxib is initiated, discontinued to dose changed.
WarfarinCelecoxib may increase the anticoagulant effect of warfarin.
