Bextra Lawyer - d'Oliveira & Associates

Research has revealed that Bextra can more than double a patient's chance of a severe coronary event such as a heart attack, stroke or even death.

On April 7, 2005, the Food and Drug Administration announced that it had asked Pfizer, Inc. to withdraw Bextra (valdecoxib) from the market, and that Pfizer had agreed to suspend sales and marketing of Bextra in the U.S. pending further discussions with the agency. The FDA based its decision, in part, on the increased risk of cardiovascular events such as heart attacks and strokes alongside reports of serious and potentially life-threatening skin reactions such as Stevens Johnsons Syndrome and toxic epidermal necrolysis.

More recent research has revealed that Bextra can more than double a patient's chance of a severe coronary event such as a heart attack, stroke or even death in some instances. This represents a potential risk factor even greater than the painkiller Vioxx, which was removed from the market in September 2004.

Pfizer has also recently warned doctors that Bextra can cause rare but serious skin reactions like Stevens Johnson Syndrome more often than any other drug in its class. These potentially deadly skin reactions occur most often in the first two weeks of Bextra treatment. Bextra now carries a warning about these skin reaction risks, which is the final warning step before a recall.

PLEASE SPEAK WITH YOUR DOCTOR BEFORE DISCONTINUING THE USE OF BEXTRA OR ANY OTHER PRESCRIPTION DRUGS.
