Have any of you taken Vioxx for arthritis or fibromyalgia? Did it help any and did you experience any side effects while taking it? My doctor prescribed it for me yesterday due to severe pain and swelling in my fingers. I have not had my prescription filled yet because I am trying to do some research on the medication first. I'm cautious about trying new medicine because most of the others I have tried elevated my blood pressure and caused me to retain fluid. I would appreciate any input from others who have tried Vioxx. Thanks.
