Common Name: Anti-inflammatory tablets
Strength: 120 mg
Etoricoxib is a selective COX-TWO inhibitor. Anti-inflammatory painkillers like etoricoxib are sometimes called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), or just â€˜anti-inflammatoriesâ€™. Etoricoxib is used to treat painful conditions such as arthritis, gout and dental pain after surgery. It eases pain and reduces inflammation.
Etoricoxib is also known as a cyclo-oxygenase-2 inhibitor. This is because it works to relieve pain and inflammation by blocking an enzyme in the body called cyclo-oxygenase-2 (COX-TWO). COX-TWO is involved in the production of irritant substances in the body in response to disease and injury. By blocking the action of COX-TWO, etoricoxib reduces the symptoms of pain and inflammation.
Indications and Usage:
Etoricoxib is indicated for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, osteoarthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, chronic low back pain, acute pain, and gout. Approved indications differ by country.
A Cochrane systematic review assessed the benefits of single-dose etoricoxib in reduction of acute post-operative pain in adults. Single-dose oral etoricoxib provides good quality pain relief post-operatively in adults and adverse events are similar to placebo in the studies included. Etoricoxib given at a dose of 120 mg is as effective or even better than other analgesics that are commonly used.
Pack Size: Etoricoxib tablet has 100 tablets in each pack. It can be customize as per buyerâ€™s specification.
