(http://www.yourlawyer.com) applauds Merck & Co.'s (NYSE: MRK) decision to withdraw the dangerous COX-2 inhibitor drug, Vioxx (Rofecoxib) from the market. Recent data indicates that patients taking Vioxx for more than 18 months faced twice the risk of a heart attack compared with those taking a placebo. Parker & Waichman, LLP maintains a website http://www.vioxx-side-effects.com to provide free information and legal evaluations to those who have taken Vioxx and been seriously injured by heart attack, stroke or blood clots.
"While the Vioxx recall is long overdue, we applaud Merck's decision to finally do the right thing for the millions of people taking this drug whose lives could be in serious danger," commented Jerrold S. Parker, one of the
founding partners of Parker & Waichman, LLP, a law firm committed to advocating for Vioxx victims' rights. "As we have been saying for years, Vioxx carries such a risk of injury and death that other COX-2 drugs or more
traditional pain medication may be a better option for arthritis patients.
Our firm is here to help the 84 million people who took this drug since 1999 who may have experienced deadly side effects." All Vioxx (Rofecoxib) users can receive a free legal evaluation by visiting: http://www.vioxx-side-effects.com.
Vioxx was approved by the FDA in 1999 for the treatment of osteoarthritis, the management of acute pain in adults, and the treatment of primary dysmenorrhea (moderate to severe menstrual pain). Parker & Waichman is
pleased that all COX-2 inhibitors will finally be examined closely by the FDA to determine if they all carry the risk of heart attack and stroke as well.
