Does celebrax have aqua blue and white color tablets?

I got 200 mg Celebrex from, India, I think. aqua blue & white capsules came in the mail all capsules on a punch card.10 on each card nothing imprinted on capsule. I order these twice a year as my coverage wont cover Celebrex. Does aqua blue and white sound like Celebrex ? Normally what I receive looks like the medicine I was prescribed Thanks so Much, Roz

Dear Roz, Hi & Welcome.

As per the description given in your query, you seem to have received the requested medicine Celebrex but in the dose of 100 mg.

Celebrex (Celecoxib) is a selective COX-2 inhibitor nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) commonly used to treat pain and inflammatory swelling associated with arthritis, muscle pain, and menstrual pain and other conditions.


Celebrex 200 mg capsule is oblong, has white color and yellow bands where as Celebrex 100 mg is similar but has blue bands instead of yellow.

So, the requested medicine what you have received is Celebrex 100 mg.

Hope this answers your query.
