What is Bextra?
Bextra, similar to Celebrex, works by inhibiting the COX-2 form of the COX enzyme to block production of prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are hormone-like substances that contribute to the symptoms of pain, fever and inflammation.
Bextra tablets for oral administration contain either 10 mg or 20 mg of the active ingredient, valdecoxib. Inactive ingredients include lactose monohydrate, microcrystalline cellulose, pregelatinized starch, croscarmellose sodium, magnesium stearate, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, polyethylene glycol, polysorbate 80, and titanium dioxide.
