Arcoxia

Hi. I read a Health 24 article from April 2007 which stated that Arcoxia had not been approved by the FDA as it was too similar to the banned Vioxx. Is Arcoxia an approved &  safe drug to use? Thanks

The coxib group of drugs constantly seem to run into trouble, and although they work brilliantly, they are often taken of the market as a result of safety issues.
For now the MCC still sees Arcoxia as safe, and unless you have heart disease or another contra-indicated condition, you can continue using it.
