    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the first generic versions of Celebrex (celecoxib) in 2014. The medication is used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, short-term pain, and other conditions. Generic prescription drugs must have the same quality and strength as brand-name drugs.
