What is Celeheal (Celecoxib) used for?
Celeheal 100 (Celecoxib) is an anti-inflammatory drug that is used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis. Celeheal 100 (Celecoxib) has anti-inflammatory, antipyretic, analgesic effect.
Celecoxib selectively inhibits COX-2 and blocks the formation of pro-inflammatory PG. At therapeutic concentrations, Celecoxib does not inhibit COX-1.
In clinical trials in healthy volunteers, celecoxib in single doses up to 800 mg and 600 mg twice a day for 7 days (higher than the recommended therapeutic doses) did not reduce platelet aggregation and did not increase bleeding time. Suppression of the synthesis of PGE2 can lead to fluid retention due to increased reabsorption in the thick ascending segment of the loop of Henle and, possibly, other distal areas of the nephron. PGE2 inhibits the reabsorption of water in the collecting tubules, interfering with the action of antidiuretic hormone.

Contact your doctor immediately if you experience any serious or worrying symptoms.
Pregnancy: Adequate and strictly controlled studies in pregnant women have not been conducted. In pregnancy, it is possible if the expected effect of therapy outweighs the potential risk to the fetus.
