Nucoxia is a prescription treatment for the following conditions:
- Acute and chronic signs of osteoarthritis (Disease of the joints)
- Ankylosing spondylitis (inflammation of the spine and large joints)
- Acute gouty arthritis (recurring attacks of very painful inflammation and redness in the joints)
- Acute pain conditions such as pain related to dental procedures and musculoskeletal pain
The medicine contains the active ingredient Etoricoxib, a group of known selective COX-2 inhibitors. This medicine works by blocking the effects of the COX-2 enzyme, which makes other chemicals called prostaglandin in the body. Some prostaglandins are produced at injury sites or places where damage occurs, which causes pain and inflammation. By blocking the action of COX-2 enzymes, fewer prostaglandins are produced, which means pain and swelling are eased.
Before taking Nucoxia 60 mg, read the prescription carefully, as it will give more information about the tablet. It is important to follow your doctor’s instructions to reap the medicine's full benefits. Take the tablet once daily, exactly as your doctor tell you to. People with osteoarthritis are usually prescribed a 60 mg dose if needed. People with rheumatoid arthritis or ankylosing spondylitis are prescribed Nucoxia 60 mg once daily to control pain associated with these conditions. Swallow the tablet with water. You may take it before or after consuming food, although the anti-inflammatory drug work more rapidly if taken without food. Usually, a doctor will prescribe the lowest dose for the shortest time possible to reduce the risk of side effects. If you need to take medicine for a long time, your doctor may prescribe you another medicine to take along with Nucoxia to protect your stomach from irritation.
