How This Drug Works
Non-steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs or NSAIDs
NSAIDs reduce pain, inflammation and swelling while helping the body return to a normal temperature. When the body is injured or ill, it releases an enzyme known as COX. NSAIDs help control two specific types of COX enzymes, COX-1 and COX-2.
Non&#45;steroidal Anti&#45;Inflammatory Drugs, or NSAIDs, reduce pain, inflammation and swelling while helping the body return to a normal temperature.<br><br>When the body is injured or ill, it releases Cyclooxygenase, an enzyme commonly known as COX.  COX enzyme increases production of Prostaglandins or &#34;PGs.&#34; While some PG&#39;s are necessary for cell health, others can irritate nerves and cause pain and swelling.  NSAIDs help control two specific types of COX enzymes, COX&#45;1 and COX&#45;2.<br><br>NSAIDs stop both types of COX enzymes from working, thus reducing the level of PGs. Newer NSAIDs are designed to target COX&#45;2 selectively and leave COX&#45;1 alone. Ideally, this reduces pain and inflammation without upsetting the stomach.
