Can ketoprofen and Celecoxib be used together?

Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Agents may enhance the adverse/toxic effect of NSAID (COX-2 Inhibitor).

The prescribing information for both celecoxib and etoricoxib recommends avoiding concurrent use with any other NSAID due to an increased risk for adverse reactions,

So.. Concurrent use of another NSAID together with a COX-2 inhibitor is not recommended and should be avoided.

Pharmacist, CPHQ, CHQO, Quality Coordinator, Chemotherapy Preparation incharge. Graduated pharmacy school in 2009 I stood with my classmates as we recited the “Oath of a Pharmacist” in. There is one particular vow that stood out to me as we recited the Oath and I embrace this vow, “I will apply my knowledge, experience, and skills to the best of my ability to assure optimal outcomes for my patients.” I love being a pharmacist because it allows me to use my knowledge, abilities, and talents to improve patient outcomes in the community hospital in which I am employed as the pharmacy clinical coordinator.
