The Dangerous Product
Celebrex (celecoxib) is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) of the category Cox-2 inhibitors, similar to Bextra and Vioxx. It is used to treat various conditions, like osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and various menstrual problems. When used for polyps it is also known by the name Onsenal.
Unfortunately, the product is not without its problems, and many patients have unsuspectingly suffered harm as a result of the medication. A 2004APCtrial, for examples, found the drug might present the same risk to patients at Vioxx. Manufactured by Pfizer, Inc., Celebrex has been linked to many serious side effects including:
- Heart Attack
- Blackened Stool
- Chest Pain
- Kidney Failure or Problems
- Vomit with Blood
- Increased Blood Pressure
- and Stomach Aches
Various Celebrex lawsuits have been filed by those suffering harm as a result of complications from the drug. The first lawsuits were filed in 2006, and since that time hundreds of millions of dollars have been paid to patients suffering the serious side effects of the drug. Many more patients are likely affected by the product unknowingly. It is important to seek legal help if you have any suspicions about the way the drug had affected you or a loved one.
