Consumers suffering from Bextra and Vioxx side effects have hope for justice as the FDA puts pressure on drug companies manufacturing certain pain medications

To support those adversely affected by the pain medication, Bextra, LawyersandSettlements.com promotes free case evaluations by U.S. law firms

New York City, New York Since the recall of Bextra, Pfizer has been the defendant in a number of class action lawsuits in both state and federal courts facing allegations of false advertising, securities fraud, and personal injury related to both Bextra and Celebrex. To seek help, consumers submit their personal grievances with these drugs to LawyersandSettlements.com in hopes of legal representation and compensation.

Since Bextra's launch in 2001, it has been prescribed to millions of consumers throughout the U.S., Canada, and the European Union as a pain reliever for those suffering from Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and severe menstrual cramps (Primary Dysmenorrhea). After an analysis of available information and clinical study results, the FDA concluded that the risks of cardiovascular damage and fatal skin diseases outweighed benefits and asked Pfizer to remove the drug from the US market. Canada and the European Union quickly followed.

After further analysis, the FDA issued a warning label change for all Cox-2 inhibitor drugs and NSAIDS (Bextra, Celebrex, Vioxx, Aspirin, ibuprofen, Aleve, and others), to note an increased risk of cardiovascular (CV) problems and potential life-threatening gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding. To date consumers have linked Bextra with heart attacks/strokes, stomach ulcers, deadly skin diseases Stevens-Johnson Syndrome and Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis, anaphylactic shock, and liver damage.

Consumers that have been affected by Bextra and related Cox-2 inhibitor drugs are confident that they will receive justice and compensation as they look to a recent precedent-setting Vioxx lawsuit in which a Texas jury awarded a multi-million dollar settlement to the plaintiff.
