Re: Vioxx vs. Celebrex vs. Bextra
I think they are in the same family of non steroidal anti inflammatory's, so if you think its the Vioxx causing your troubles, I'm not sure how going to the other, in the same family would change things unless the swelling and blood pressure is being caused by something else. If you take other medications, check with your pharmacist for drug interactions and ask him about this medications side affects. There is a natural supplement combination that acts as a cox2 inhibitor (like Celebrex) and the pharmacist could talk to you about that as well. There is a lot of red tape with the Celebrex (gotta love the HMO) so, I'm going this route when I run out.
