Bextra is effective but is also similar to other non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs) (ibuprofen, nparoxen, etc). For pain, Bextra might be increased to 20 mg daily but check with your doctor first. If you are older, or have other medical prolems, your doctor might not want you to take the higher dose.
