What is Bextra?

 

Bextra, also known as Valdecoxib, was approved by the FDA in 2001 for the treatment of pain, tenderness, and swelling caused by osteoarthritis and adult rheumatoid arthritis. Bextra is supposed to decrease your level of suffering, but for some people it brought about a whole new range of problems.

Belonging to a class of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs) called COX-2 inhibitors, Bextra is a compound that blocks the COX-2 enzyme, the prime cause of pain and inflammation in arthritis. In some people, especially those with allergies to sulfonamides, Bextra has shown far more dramatic side effects than first believed to be capable of. Sadly, some of those side effects could prove fatal.
