VIOXXX off the market
10-02-2004, 11:08 AM #2
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's too bad, I had excellent results with the stuff the few times I used it but I near sh*t myself the first time I got a few sample packs and read the insert.

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.
