Atoricoxib Drug Information

Medication Information: Anti-inflammatory painkillers such as atoricoxib are sometimes referred to as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or simply "anti-inflammatory drugs". Atoricoxib is used to treat painful conditions such as arthritis, gout and toothache after surgery. This medicine relieves pain and inflammation.

Atoricoxib is 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 cyclooxygenase 2 (an enzyme that produces stimulants in the body in response to disease and injury). As a result, by blocking the action of cyclooxygenase 2 (COX-2), it reduces the symptoms of pain and inflammation.

  • Do not take more than the dose prescribed by your doctor for atoricoxib.
