Q: What should I keep in mind while taking Etoricoxib?
A: Inform your doctor if you have any infection because this medicine can mask the symptoms of a severe infection. Weight control and regular exercising can increase muscle strength and reduce the load on joints. During pain, hot and cold fomentation may also be helpful. Use support devices. These little things may reduce your need for painkillers.
