How does it work?

Etoricoxib works by blocking the action of an enzyme in the body called cyclooxygenase (COX). COX is involved in the production of substances in the body known as prostaglandins. The prostaglandins cause the pain, swelling, and inflammation. Etoricoxib reduces inflammation and pain by reducing the production of these prostaglandins. This will relieve the pain.

I have been taking Arcoxia 90 mg for infection in my shoulder for about 10 months. At first the pain went away. After taking it for 6 months it became less and less effective and I noticed I was retaining a fluid in my fingers, toes and knuckles. I gained 5-6 kilos within 2-3 weeks. There was also severe pain, cramps and stiffness in my fingers. I also had many stomach and intestinal problems. Eventually I stopped taking Arcoxia 90 mg and started treatment with prednisone at a dose of 10 mg per day as recommended by my rheumatologist. Conclusion: Be careful with long-term use of Arcoxia.


I took Arcoxia for pain associated with a flare-up of rheumatoid arthritis. On the 2nd day of taking it, I had swollen legs and feet, as well as extreme pain. I suffered from severe cramps in my legs and had trouble urinating. The symptoms lasted for several weeks and I had to use oral steroids to get rid of these symptoms. I would not take Arcoxia again.
