Naproxen or Celecoxib: Which is Better?

Pain can decrease your quality of life. Whether your pain is from a temporary condition such as menstrual cramps or a chronic condition like arthritis, there are a number of pain alleviation treatments available. You can try self-help which can include moderate movement, warm baths, hot compresses and rest. However, self-help does not always alleviate your pain and you may consider an oral pain reliever such as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication. We sell a range of effective anti-inflammatory drugs such as Celocoxib Capsules and Naproxen Tablets from our online pharmacy with rapid despatch for swift relief from those unpleasant symptoms.

Celecoxib and Naproxen are both nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) able to treat pain and swelling for everything from arthritis to menstrual cramps. They both decrease production of prostaglandins, which are the chemical substances in the body that are responsible for pain and inflammation. They do so by blocking what is known as the COX enzymes. Whilst both anti-inflammatory drugs work similarly, there are some differences in how they are used.

Naproxen is a nonselective COX inhibitor that blocks both COX-1 and COX-2 enzymes. Because it is nonselective, it may have a higher risk of stomach ulcers than other NSAIDS. It is often prescribed for a wider range of conditions than Celecoxib, such as Gout and Tendinitis.

Celexocib is a selective COX-2 inhibitor. Because it is selective and blocks only COX-2 enzymes, it puts you at less risk for long term side effects. It can be used to treat osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis as well as acute pain from severe menstrual cramps. Celecoxib is a capsule and can be taken orally in 50, 100, 200 and 400 mg doses, usually two times per day, depending on the condition being treated. There is a lower risk of stomach ulcers with this NSAID.

Both Naproxen and Celecoxib can be effective pain relievers for many conditions. They are nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications that can help you manage both acute and long term conditions. You should talk to your doctor about the best way to manage your pain.
