cox2-inhibitors

March 2005
A Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Advisory Panel has voted to continue to allow doctors to prescribe COX-2 painkillers, a class of drugs that includes Vioxx, Celebrex, and Bextra. The drugs must now be labeled with “black box” warnings. These strong warnings caution patients and doctors about the increased risk of heart attacks and strokes. The FDA decision seeks to address the conflicts that doctors and millions of patients have between balancing the benefits of the drugs versus the health risks.
