Vioxx and High Blood Preasure

Has anyone developed high blood preasure from taking vioxx? If you go off vioxx does it drop. I have been taking it for approx 3months and all of a sudden my blood preasure has gone from 106/60 to around 140/80. I am very physically fit, not overweight (body fat index 20) don't smoke very heathy eating habits and 56 years old with no history of high blood preasure.

If Vioxx is causing your BP to go up, then it should be lower when you stop taking it. I take Bextra and so far my BP hasn't gone up. Good luck to you.

I also experienced elevated BP when taking vioxx. I've been on Bextra for about
8 months and BP has been normal.
