In brief: Which NSAID?

Orudis (ketoprofen), retard (diclofenac 100mg extended release) and celebra (celecoxib) are all non-steroidal medication.
Celebra is a cox ii specific version which has less effect on platelet function (less bleeding tendency) and somewhat less GI irritation which can be good for some patients. All of the nsaids can cause increased risk of heart attack, stroke, high BP and blood clots. Ask ur doc.
