Bextra

A Bextra injury may be debilitating

Bextra is a Cox 2 inhibitor designed to relieve pain and treat osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis as well as other conditions. Bextra, however, is linked to cardiovascular problems and Stevens Johnson Syndrome (a potentially fatal skin reaction). The drug maker G.D. Searle & Co. marketed the drug before the company was acquired by Pfizer, which marketed Bextra worldwide before it was withdrawn in 2005.

Bextra was put on the market to replace Pfizer's other Cox 2 inhibitor pain relief drug Celebrex. (A similar drug is Vioxx, which also is linked to adverse side effects.)

The following are symptoms that may indicate a serious problem if you are taking Bextra:

  • Skin rash
  • Mucosal lesions
  • Other signs of hypersensitivity
