is Celebrex? It is in the same class of drugs as the
recalled drug, Vioxx, a Cox 2 inhibitor. Celebrex is used
to treat pain such as arthritis and because of its adverse
effects, has been recalled from the market on October 2004.
The maker, Pfizer, has sent out
a press release in defense of their product that it does not
have any long-term negative impact on patients who use the
drug. They also state that there is no evidence of the
drug increasing heart attacks.
Experts have a different
view. Patients who use the drug and have a history of
heart disease can worsen their condition because the drug may
cause a heart attack or stroke.
If you have suffered from this
drug, call your doctor and get another older, proven drug that
is just as effective and may even be cheaper in cost.
