    yah we got the call a few days ago. 3X greater risk of cardiovascular events, ouch. That was merck second best selling drug at 3 billion a year, Zocor makes 5 billion. I suggest buying Pfizer stock. they own both of the other drugs bextra and celebrex. You'll see another cox-2 on the market soon for sure. I bet the pfizer guys through a huge kegger though.

    It was a couple years back so I don't remember exactly I just remember thinking holy crap after reading it. Maybe one of the docs or pharms on here can give us a personal opinion or share some patient experiences with the stuff.

    All the patients i've seen taking vioxx seemed to tolerate it quite well. Those package/patient inserts are required by law to list any and all side effects and adverse drug reactions, even if they are completely unrelated to the drug itself. With that said there is always a pearl hidden in those inserts. The medical community has suspected for quite awhile now that vioxx caused adverse cardiac effects; however, it was unknown how bad it really was until the results of this new colon polyp study were published. From a pharmacist's perspective it amazes me that prescribers even use these drugs to the extent they do. Most patients do not recieve the necessary level of pain control with these medications (even at maximal doses). Therefore they are forced to utilize NSAIDs or APAP therapy to gain full pain control. So, why pay $150-$200 per month for a medication that doesn't work, when a patient could just use NSAID therapy for $5.00 per month and have better pain control??? Disclaimer!!!!! These drugs do have their place in patient whom either have or are at risk for stomach ulcers. In this case, by all means please use a selective cox-2.
