Composition:

Each ETORIB-90 tablet contains etoricoxib 90mg.

Description:

ETORIB-90 is the brand name for etoricoxib. Etoricoxib is a potent analgesic that belongs to the class of Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs). This drug is largely used to relieve moderate pain to joint swelling that is associated with different types of arthritis or gout.

Etoricoxib works by lowering the production of prostaglandins at the site of inflammation. Prostaglandins are one of the key components of the immune system that are associated with inflammatory response activation, fever, and pain. Etoricoxib inhibits the activity of the enzyme, cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), which converts arachidonic acid to prostaglandins. This leads to lowered concentration of prostaglandins at the site of infection, and eventually reduces the pain and other symptoms of the inflammation. Etoricoxibís affinity for COX-2 is 106 fold more than its affinity for COX-1, which is makes it a favorable anti-inflammatory agent over other NSAIDs with least GI side effects.
