Bextra Class Action Lawsuit
A recent Bextra side effects study shows that
with Bextra the risk of suffering a heart attack is higher than
the risk of a Vioxx induced heart attack or stroke.
This web pages offers information if you or a loved one have
taken Bextra and experienced serious Bextra side effects or are
concerned about a possible Bextra Recall and want to find out
about the possibility of a Bextra Lawsuit.
On November 9, 2004 a study was presented at the American Heart
Association meeting in New Orleans indicating that the incidence
of heart attacks and strokes in patients taking Bextra was
double that of the placebo. Bextra is approved to treat
arthritis pain and is a COX-2 inhibitor. Other drugs in the
class have also shown to increase cardiovascular events; Merck’s
Vioxx was recalled in September 2004 due to increased risk of
heart attack and stroke.
If you have
suffered from any of the Bextra side effects, you should contact
a Bextra Lawsuit Attorney (Vioxx Lawyers will also be able to
assist) to ensure your interests are protected.
