North Carolina Vioxx lawyer
Millions of people have used Vioxx since it was introduced in May 1999. Unfortunately, this non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) was linked to serious health conditions. The drug was used to relieve pain related to osteoarthritis, but was voluntarily withdrawn from the market by manufacturer Merck & Co. in 2004.
Vioxx also has been prescribed to people in need of treatment for acute pain and menstrual pain.
