Characteristics of Rofecoxib
The powder is white or whitish-yellowish in color. Poorly soluble in acetone, slightly soluble in methanol and isopropyl acetate, very slightly soluble in ethanol, practically insoluble in octanol, insoluble in water.
Pharmacological action - anti-inflammatory, antipyretic, analgesic.
Highly specifically inhibits COX-2, inhibits the formation of anti-inflammatory prostaglandins. In therapeutic concentrations in humans does not affect the activity of COX-1.
When pregnant doses were administered twice to the recommended daily dose for a human, a decrease in the diameter of the botulinum duct was observed in the fetuses. In studies of reproductive function in rats and rabbits, when doses exceeding the recommended daily dose for humans were 29 and 2 times, respectively, there were no congenital anomalies in the offspring.
After oral administration, it is well absorbed from the digestive tract, bioavailability is more than 90%. Binding to plasma proteins is about 90%. Cmax is achieved after 2 hours. It is subjected to biotransformation in the liver with the formation of six inactive metabolites. It is excreted primarily by the kidneys (72% in the form of inactive metabolites, less than 1% in unchanged form) and with feces (14% unchanged). Plasma clearance is about 120 ml / min.
Application of Rofecoxib
Osteoarthritis (acute, chronic), relief of pain syndrome, treatment of primary dysmenorrhea.
Hypersensitivity, incl. to other NSAIDs.
Restrictions for use
Anamnestic information about the development of asthmatic attacks, hives, or other allergic reactions when taking salicylates or other NSAIDs; renal failure - with creatinine clearance less than 30 ml / min (no clinical experience in this category of patients), moderate or severe liver function disorders, children's age (safety and efficacy in children not defined).
pregnancy and lactation
Contraindicated in the III trimester of pregnancy (possibly premature infestation of Botallov duct in the fetus). It is possible in the first and second trimesters of pregnancy, if the expected effect of therapy in the mother exceeds the potential risk for the fetus (adequate and strictly controlled studies on the application were not conducted). For the duration of treatment, breastfeeding should be discontinued.
From the nervous system and sensory organs: dizziness, drowsiness, weakening of the speed of thinking, confusion, hallucinations.
From the cardiovascular system and blood (hematopoiesis, hemostasis): ≥ 2% - arterial hypertension, congestive heart failure.
On the part of the digestive tract: ≥ 2% - heartburn, nausea, diarrhea, dyspepsia, discomfort in the epigastric region; vomiting; in isolated cases - ulceration of the mucous membrane of the oral cavity.
On the part of the genitourinary system: a reversible decrease in kidney function, including kidney failure.
Allergic reactions: angioedema, itching, rash, urticaria.
Other: ≥ 2% - edema of the lower limbs; ≥ 1% - increase in ALT and / or AST.
May increase the concentration of methotrexate in the blood. With simultaneous administration with warfarin, prothrombin time increases. Rifampicin reduces plasma concentration by 50%.
Routes of administration
Precautions for Rofecoxib
They are used with caution in patients with a history of gastric ulcer and duodenal ulcer, with edema, uncompensated heart failure, liver cirrhosis, in patients older than 65 years. Against the backdrop of severe renal or hepatic insufficiency, careful monitoring of kidney / liver function is necessary. In patients with dehydration, rehydration before the start of treatment is desirable.
