What is Elyxyb?

Elyxyb is an oral solution that contains celecoxib and helps treat migraine-related headaches in adults.Celecoxib is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication (NSAID) that is utilized to treat conditions that trigger inflammation and pain. Since 1998, the drug has been sold in capsule form (Celebrex); however, in 2020, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will approve Elyxyb orally administered solution.

Elyxyr oral solution is created with a self-microemulsifying delivery system that allows celecoxib's absorption to be improved and to work more efficiently. Elyxyr can be used within one hour to ease the pain of migraine attacks.Elyxyb is believed to function by blocking an enzyme known as cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) that blocks the manufacturing of a particular group of lipids known as prostaglandins.
