Deramaxx is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAIDs). Deramaxx is related to other drugs like Celebrex, ibuprofen, aspirin and naproxen. Deramaxx is used to treat pain and inflammation, arthritis, chronic joint pain and stiffness, and pain associated with surgeries. Deramaxx suppresses inflammation and pain by blocking the production of prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are chemicals in the body that promote inflammation, pain, fever, and blood clotting. Deramaxx blocks the enzyme responsible for producing pain and inflammation without affecting the function of the kidneys, platelets, and stomach lining.

How it works

Deramaxx is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that belongs to the COX-2 inhibitor class of medications. Deramaxx is different from other NSAIDs because at recommended doses it blocks the COX-2 enzyme, not the COX-1 enzyme. While the COX-1 enzyme is necessary for many normal body functions, COX-2 enzymes trigger inflammation and contribute to pain in arthritic joints.

Storage:

Store Deramaxx at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Keep this medication away from children and pets.

Deramaxx can be given with or without food. Keep plenty of water available for your pet to drink.
