What is the most important information I should know about celecoxib?

Celecoxib can increase your risk of fatal heart attack or stroke, even if you don't have any risk factors. Do not use this medicine just before or after heart bypass surgery (coronary artery bypass graft, or CABG).

Celecoxib may also cause stomach or intestinal bleeding, which can be fatal. These conditions can occur without warning while you are using celecoxib, especially in older adults.

What is celecoxib?

Celecoxib is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID).

Celecoxib is used to treat pain or inflammation caused by many conditions such as arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, and menstrual pain. Celecoxib is used to treat juvenile rheumatoid arthritis in children who are at least 2 years old. Celecoxib is also used in the treatment of hereditary polyps in the colon.

Celecoxib may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.

What should I discuss with my healthcare provider before taking celecoxib?
