  1. Pain Relief

    • Etoricoxib provides effective relief from moderate to severe pain associated with various musculoskeletal conditions.
  2. Anti-inflammatory Action

    • The medication reduces inflammation, which is beneficial in conditions where inflammation is a significant component of the disease process, such as arthritis and gout.
  3. Improved Mobility

    • By reducing pain and inflammation, Etoricoxib can help improve joint function and mobility, enhancing the quality of life for individuals with chronic inflammatory conditions.
  4. Acute Pain Management

    • Used in the short-term management of acute pain episodes, such as those occurring during gout attacks or after surgery.

Administration and Dosage

  • Dosage: The typical dosage for adults is 90mg once daily. However, the exact dosage and duration of treatment should be determined by a healthcare provider based on the individual's condition and response to the medication.
  • Administration: The tablets should be swallowed whole with water, and can be taken with or without food. It is recommended to take the medication at the same time each day.

Safety and Precautions

    • Etoricoxib may increase the risk of cardiovascular events such as heart attack and stroke, particularly when used at higher doses and for long durations. Patients with a history of cardiovascular disease should use this medication with caution.
  2. Gastrointestinal Risk

    • Although Etoricoxib is designed to be gentler on the stomach than traditional NSAIDs, it can still cause gastrointestinal side effects such as stomach pain, ulcers, and bleeding. Patients with a history of gastrointestinal disorders should use it with caution.
  3. Kidney Function

    • Etoricoxib can affect kidney function. Patients with existing kidney issues or those at risk for kidney problems should be monitored closely while on this medication.
