In the past several years, some newer medications have come on the market; these are commonly referred to as COX-2 inhibitors . Remember, all NSAIDs work against cyclooxygenase (COX). Traditional NSAIDs (. Ibuprofen, Motrin, Aleve) work against both COX-1 and COX-2. COX-1 and COX-2 are both types of cyclooxygenase enzymes that function in your body. The new medications (. Celebrex) work primarily against COX-2, and allow COX-1 to function normally. Because COX-1 is more important in producing the protective lining in your gut (gastric mucosa), these newer NSAIDs are believed to have less of a risk of causing stomach ulcers.
Indications. In addition to the synergistic effects NSAID and corticosteroids have on postoperative CME formation and treatment, NSAID use primarily ameliorates pain on the ocular surface. Anecdotally, research suggests NSAIDs can be used temporarily to treat pain and irritation related to mechanical or surgical irritation of the conjunctiva and cornea, pre-post 5% betadine wash for viral epidemic keratoconjunctivitis or in combination with a strong corticosteroid for recalcitrant cases of uveitis. 4 Most indications for NSAID use are off-label therapy options.
