CLASS did not show an increased risk of cardiovascular events in subjects receiving celecoxib versus naproxen, but, in contrast with VIGOR, in which aspirin subjects were excluded, aspirin users were not excluded from CLASS, potentially masking any adverse cardiovascular effects of celecoxib.
Hence, interruption of this pathway, an activity common to all NSAIDs (including aspirin) is believed to be the basis of pain relief. Most patients presenting to the clinician with LBP will have two primary agendas, ie, ascertaining whether important secondary pathology is present (eg, neoplasia, infection, abdominal aortic aneurysm), and relief of pain. NSAIDs are often considered front-line agents because they act rapidly and are generally well tolerated. Cyclo-oxygenase 2 enzyme (Cox-2) inhibitors have some advantage over the Cox-1 inhibitors in terms of safety.

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are among the most commonly prescribed medications worldwide.
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are powerful analgesics and are especially effective for nociceptive pain. NSAIDs also are effective in some neuropathic pain syndromes when used in combination with other pain medications. NSAIDs are usually indicated for the treatment of acute or chronic conditions where pain and inflammation are present.
Acetaminophen, ibuprofen, naproxen, and ketoprofen are available over-the-counter in the United States.
Oxaprozin, aspirin, naproxen, and piroxicam have comparable efficacy in osteoarthritis.
NSAIDs are cleared from the blood stream by the kidney, so it is very important that patients over 65 years of age or patients with kidney disease consult a physician prior to taking them.

SOCMOBEM says. Unfortunay, I don’t have time to find the articles, but to the best of my recollection ibuprofen has a therapeutic ceiling at 400 mg (is higher doses don’t give an added analgesic effect) and ketorolac maxes out at 7.5 or 10 mg (even though the commonly given dose is 30 mg).

The BNF (British National Formulary) mentions this really well as well. I can’t find an online link (there must be one somewhere).

You are absoluy right, I did not mention the ceiling effect concept of NSAIDs. The literature is muddied by the fact that studies on NSAIDs vary between use for chronic pain and acute pain, and most studies are in the Rheumatology literature where they use the higher, anti-inflammatory, dosing. I’m going to make another post specifically discussing the ceiling effect in the next few days. Thanks for the comment. There is a 1986 paper that discusses the ceiling effect of ibuprofen in patients post dental extraction, and another paper in the Anesthesia literature that talks about the ketorolac ceiling effect. I’ve amended this post to show that those are generally max anti-inflammatory doses. Thanks for reading, Chris Christine says.
These are not likely to be common in the ED though. Emergency Elephant says. Indomethacin is specifically indicated in a couple of unusual headache syndromes (ice pick headache springs to mind as one).
I left this out here, and it is very important so we’ll discuss it in part two of the NSAID saga. Thanks to reader @ETtube for pointing this out. *Edit : There is an important concept of ceiling effect with NSAIDs.
