Celebrex Attorneys Discuss: Celebrex Lawsuits, Celebrex Adverse Side Effects and Why You May Have a Strong Case
Celebrex attorneys in the past few years have seen health related warnings sent to patients using this medication. The prescription painkiller Celebrex (Celecoxib), used by millions of Americans to relieve symptoms of arthritis pain, has now been shown to increase a patient’s chance of a severe coronary event such as a heart attack, stroke or death by a large percentage in some instances. Celebrex is one of the top 10 selling drugs in the United States, with over 21 million prescriptions written last year alone. Although Celebrex is now thought to cause dangers similar to Vioxx and Bextra, Pfizer has not recalled Celebrex from the market. However, those who have taken Celebrex and suffered severe coronary events such as strokes and heart attacks, may be entitled to bring a legal action to recover for damages. In the event that a coronary event that may have been brought on by the use of Celebrex resulted in death then the families of the deceased may also be entitled to recover damages for their loss.
Are you, or someone in your family, a victim of Celebrex adverse side effects? Some of the more serious adverse effects include:
- Angina Pectoris – A sometimes-severe pain in the chest due to decreased blood flowing to the heart
- Stroke – Occurs when a blood clot manages to block an artery and limits oxygen flow to the brain
- Heart Attack – Occurs when a blood clot totally blocks one of the arteries leading to the heart
