Celecoxib and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs in everyday clinical practice (summary)
Olga Brzezińska, Joanna Makowska
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are widely used in clinical practice. Their easy availability and usefulness in the treatment of frequent, troublesome and non-specific ailments such as pain and fever causes their wide application both in symptomatic treatment and the targeted one due to their anti-inflammatory effect. Like other drugs, NSAIDs are not free from their side effects such as gastrointestinal, cardiovascular and renal complications. Their use also involves the risk of unpredictable hypersensitivity reactions. This work aims at looking broadly at the usefulness of NSAIDs in everyday clinical practice and at considering possible side effects in the aspect of optimal therapy selection.
