Pharmaceutical Liability-Vioxx Side Effects

Heart researchers at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation have found the popular arthritis drug Vioxx may increase the risk of heart attacks and other cardiac side effects. People taking Vioxx are twice as likely to have heart attacks as people who take older anti-inflammatory drugs to treat arthritis. In the current study, Vioxx was compared to the traditional arthritis drug Naproxen , which works in a similar way to aspirin. People using Vioxx were twice as likely to have a heart attack than patients on Naproxen. In a study of 8,000 people, 161 patients had heart attacks and 70 percent of them were taking Vioxx.
