There is some evidence that Merck & Co., Inc., the company responsible for placing Vioxx on the market, was well aware of the increased risks the drug posed to patients, yet hid those findings for the sake of profits. A Vioxx lawyer has the very documents which prove what Merck knew and when it knew it. Merck marketed its product without adequately warning consumers or physicians of the potential effects, causing death and injury to countless Americans. Pfizer Inc., the company that manufactured Bextra, initially claimed its drug did not have the same cardiovascular effects as Vioxx, but the drug was pulled from the market after studies of chronic use indicated that it also posed severe cardiovascular risks for consumers. A Bextra lawyer can help you process your claim and obtain the compensation you deserve. Similar cardiovascular effects of Celebrex were discovered in studies that revealed threats posed by Bextra. Though the FDA has not removed Celebrex from the market, it has issued a black box warning for the drug, the most severe warning placed on prescription drug labels. Your Celebrex lawyer has access to the documents which the FDA relied upon in making its decisions. The FDA forbids advertisements to physicians regarding the availability of drugs for which it has issued a black box warning.
