Vioxx Recall leads to Vioxx LawsuitsWritten by Margaret Wommack
Vioxx is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammagory drug (NSAID) that reduces inflammation, pain, fever, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis stiffness, and menstrual pain. However, Vioxx has been shown to cause blood clots, heart attacks, stroke, Stevens-Johnson Syndrome, kidney damage and other dangerous and potentially deadly side effects.
Lawsuits are being filed against Merck, manufacturer of Vioxx, for product liability. The claim is that Merck knew dangers of Vioxx and marketed it anyway. In drug product liability lawsuits, prosecution must prove that Merck didnít provide for safety of patient and that they were harmed as a direct result from taking Vioxx and from Merckís negligence. Sometimes drug companies that wish to avoid public scrutiny will settle outside of court, but they will sometimes lengthen trial to force plaintiff into agreeing to their settlement.

Viga manufacturers put everyone who took their pill in a great deal of risk. Viagra users are warned that taking drug with prescription nitrates is potentially deadly
