Question

Bextra replacement

Bextra was the only NSAID I could use. Now that it's off the market, what can I replace it with? I have a severely allergic reaction to vioxx, which appears to be in the same category of drugs. Also cannot take aspirin, voltaren, as these also result in peri-orbital oedema and SOB.

ML,

The only other drug in the same class is celecoxib (celebrex). Speak to your doctor regarding a prescription and if it would be safe for you to use.
