    My back was so bad I couldn't get my clothes on so I decided to take one of the Vioxx to see if it would help. By the end of the day I was so much better. I just couldn't believe it.
    I had Vioxx left from my knee replacement surgery's. But I only had 6. Does any one know of a prarmacy out of the country you can get Vioxx from that is trustworthy.
    I wish you could still get Vioxx. My sister still takes Bextra . She had got 3 mo supply right before they took it off the market. I think these drugs serve a purpose if used correctly.....Thanks carle

    I took Vioxx for a while too and caused heart palpitations!
    I'll tell you what I take and found it in Prevention magazine and they say it's as effective as Vioxx. It's a herb that's called Devil's Claw and it works just as good as Vioxx. You can buy it at a herb shop or the net. The cost is about $20.00 for 100 capsules. I take 2 capsules 2+ per day. You need to take it everyday to get the best benefits. You don't need a prescription for it either and it's safe.

    I too feel like it was taken off the market too soon. It was such a good drug. But I do understand the dangers of some so called miricle drugs. I took Indocin for my knee pain many years ago. This drug would take a lot of pain away but in the end it would tear your stomach apart. Not worth the risk.

    For those of you who had the heart problems I understand your concerns . I don't want to take Vioxx all the time ...just when I get sooooooooooo bad.

    Thanks for your information. This is the most usefull site on my computter.....carle
