Question: Can my wife consider Celebrex in place of Vimovo for osteoarthritis?
Answered by Dr. Erion Spaho 2 hours later
Brief Answer:

Yes, Celebrex may be used for osteoarthritis.

Detailed Answer:


Both these drugs can be used in cases of osteoarthritis.

The answer to your question yes, Celebrex may be used instead of the Vimovo in order to control osteoarthritis symptoms.

Care should be paid to the possible adverse such upset stomach, etc because Vimovo contains Omeprazole together with naproxen to avoid such effects.

For this purpose, Celebrex should be used after meals.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
