Stay with one: Don't take both just a daily dose of one nor the other. Arcoxia is less likely to irritate the stomach as it is what we call a COX-2 inhibitor. At your age it is safer to take either since there is less likelly to be an effect on the kidney function and blood pressure, since these medications suppress prostagalndins that maintain kidney function more often in older people.
