PHARMA: Celebrex can remain on the market

Celebrex_2And to add to yesterday’s post (which Blogger prevented from getting up there till most of you had gone home, so it’s really today’s post) the FDA panel this morning ruled that Celebrex can stay on the market, although they concluded that it did have risks. They are due to rule on Bextra and Vioxx later in the day.

UPDATE: The FDA also said that Bextra and Vioxx can stay too, even though Vioxx has already gone.

  1. My name is Jane Eaton and i would like to show you my personal experience with Celebrex.
    I have taken for 11 months. I am 39 years old. Celebrex works too well, which is why it is so dangerous. It is one of the most effective things you can take for arthritis-type issues, and for controlling inflammation/pain after knee surgery. But the side effects are very extreme: intestinal bleeding/perforation, heart problems, and liver toxicity. I am allergic to Ibuprofen and Alleve, so Clebrex was a life saver. But I am not willing to sacrifice my liver for it. The ER staff told me that they see very serious side effects in Celebrex patients.
    Side effects-
    I ended up in the emergency room in extreme pain and hyperventilating because of liver problems.
    I hope this information will be useful to others,
    Jane Eaton
