Mode of action of etoricoxib

Etoricoxib belongs to the drug group of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, so the cortisone-free rheumatism. The active substance belongs to the subgroup of selective COX-2 inhibitors. It inhibits specifically the enzyme cyclooxigenase-2, which plays an important role especially in inflammatory processes. On the other hand, etoricoxib does not inhibit the sister enzyme cyclooxigenase-1 (COX-1), which is involved in the production of mucosal protective prostaglandins in the stomach.

The Coxiben in general, including Etoricoxib, is said to be a particularly good tolerability for the stomach and intestine among non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.

    Arcoxia for Pain (acute)

    Use in postoperative inflammation after hip replacement Arcoxia 120 mg was prescribed to me by the surgeon who had operated on me about 8 weeks previously. After about 7 weeks of healing, which was quite normal, I suddenly had enormous pain in the operated joint. The surgeon suspected that the spit that connects the joint to the thigh would have slipped deeper or the bone had ruptured. Nothing of the sort could be stated in the ct. I then took the drug for 17 days with immediate weight-reducing effect without any side effects. After 14 days I had no complaints after stopping the medication. After 17 days, I discontinued the medication and have been cured since. The whole thing was two years ago. At that time Arcoxia was brandheu.

    Side effects: No side effects
