WHAT'S THE LATEST IN VIOXXWritten by BLUR LOTERIŅA
Continued from page 1
In September 30, 2004, Merck officially announced of voluntary recall of Vioxx from all markets worldwide. A warning was issued to prevent people from taking Vioxx and to return all unused pills. It also causes other life-threatening diseases, such as, blood clots, angina and nonbacterial meningitis, severe intestinal damage, ulcerations and bleeding, and kidney damage. Other minor side effects include flu symptoms, weakness, loss of appetite, rash or pail skin, swelling of hand feet and other extremities.
Many blamed Food and Drug Administration or FDA, because it is its duty to assure people of harmless foods and drugs. Also, FDA was blamed for giving Merck a fast-track, 6-month approval process. Vioxx was distributed in United States in 1999. They want FDA to push drug companies to conduct longer tests before they can sell it so that people are given right warning.
In January 27, 2005, consolidation of all Vioxx cases was argued in front of federal judges in Florida by attorneys. A preliminary hearing will be held before judge after decision is made public. Now, there are web sites that offer free consultations for Vioxx victims.
