NICE GUIDANCE ON THE USE OF COX II SELECTIVE INHIBITORS (CELCOXIB, ROFECOXIB, MELOXICAM AND ETODOLAC) FOR OSTEOARTHRITIS AND RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS
Cox II selective inhibitors are not recommended for routine use in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) or osteoarthritis (OA). They should be used in preference to standard NSAIDs, when clearly indicated as part of the management of RA or OA, only in patients who may be at ‘high risk’ of developing serious gastrointestinal adverse effects.
