Can anyone provide me a little help in understanding what Vioxx is?
Sheetal, Vioxx is a drug that was used for treating Arthritis pain. Early this year, Vioxx was voluntarily withdrawn from the market based on some information that Vioxx increased the risk of heart attacks in patients.
In the recent months there is a lot of press coverage about Vioxx, its withdrawal and the heart attack risk associated with taking Vioxx. This happenings concern you only if you had taken Vioxx before or if you have arthritis pain and were looking to use Vioxx.
I knew this as I happened to read an article about Vioxx recently! You can find more info by googling it.
