Recalled Arthritis Drug Bextra Linked with Heart Attack, Stroke, and Serious Skin Disease; Searcy Denney Attorneys Have Helped Many Victims Seek Justice
The story of the class of arthritis drugs called Cox-2 inhibitors is one of the most dramatic, and tragic, examples of big pharmaceutical companies putting their own profit before the health and safety of the public.
For several years, the Big Three of Celebrex, Vioxx, and Bextra were household words, celebrated for the “miraculous” pain relief they brought to arthritis sufferers and injury victims. Warnings surfaced early about the grave dangers of all three, especially Bextra. But FDA slaps on the wrist did little to deter aggressive marketing campaigns and consequent public consumption.
