Discussions that mention vioxx

Open to All Other Health Topics board

I have been taking 25mg.vioxx for years. When I went to a cardiologist for the first time he prescribed 81mg. aspirin a day for heart health. I took the aspirin for 11 days till my stomach just started aching. I think I can't mix these two medicines. Anyone know about this?
Both Vioxx and aspirin alone can be very hard on the stomach individually. Though the aspirin dose is low, it could be that on top of the Vioxx are just too much for your stomach to handle. Perhaps taking an antiacid/heartburn medication for a few days will help out with this.
