Celebrex May Double Heart Attack Risk: 1-800-942-2056 National Toll Free Celebrex Hotline
Celebrex (Celecoxib), the popular pain killer may be linked to increased heart attack and stroke risks. Celebrex is the most prescribed drug for treating arthritis patients. Worldwide sales of Celebrex are about $2.3 billion dollars. The drug is made by Pfizer, the world's largest drug maker.
Celebrex is in the same class of drugs as Vioxx which was withdrawn after studies showed it was too dangerous. These drugs are both Cox 2 Inhibitors, a drug class that many researchers believe interferes with the body's natural ability to reduce blood clots, thereby increasing heart risks. Many doctors believe Celebrex presents the same or similar risks as Vioxx. If that is true, many people who are now taking Celebrex may be at great risk.
Lawyers associated with this web site are actively investigating injury claims on behalf of injured Celebrex users. Our attorneys have represented thousands of people in high profile pharmaceutical claims across the country and are among the national leaders in the Vioxx litigation.

The study indicates that Celebrex's risk of heart attack and stroke as great of not greater than that posed by Vioxx.
