Ask for alternative: Arcoxia is not fda approved here in the usa, it is referred to as the "son of vioxx", which has been removed from the us market due to increased cardiovascular events. Better to be safe. Other anti-inflammatories may be just as effective and safer. Good luck!

Follow your Drs. adv: Arcoxia is an NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory) one of the typical categories of medicine used for pseudogout. Take the smallest dose for the shortest time.
