M R K 110

SMALL,AND ROUND LIKE THE BACK END OF AN INK PEN, ABOUT 3 MM THICK ## Is it by any chance an orangish color? I think you have a Vioxx 25 mg. If you can check this picture to verify. Hope this helps. ## One other thing to note - if it is a Vioxx, that med has been banned by the FDA in the U.S. and I believe also in Canada. ## The information that Barry provided is correct. The tablet with the MRK 110 marking was 25mg Vioxx tablet. NDC: 00006-0110, and it is no longer available in the U.S. Merck withdrew if from the market in 2004, due to the fact that it was found to increase the risk of experiencing a heart attack, or stroke, with long-term use. Ref: Vioxx Withdrawal Information The risk was still considered to be small, but they felt it best to pull it from the market, due to the fact ...

Will Vioxx come back to the market?

Vioxx really helped me when I was on it. Do you think they will ever bring it back on the market. Or is there another drug that works as good.I am allergic to Daypro and Cataflam. Any one have any ideals?? ## Is the perscription drug Vioxx now available for consumer purchase? My husband took vioxx and says that it worked better for him then anything he has been on since the recall. ## I haven't found anything that works as well as Vioxx. I am currently taking Mobic but not getting the relief I got from Vioxx. It's short-lived and not as effective. Any news of another promising med for osteoarthritis?

Vioxx I miss it

Is anything out there to help/ ## Vioxx was the only drug that relieved my arthritis pain. Since it's off the market now, my doctor prescribed MOBIC, but after taking it 4-1/2 mos., on May 12th, I hemorrhaged severly and ended up in the hospital for 11 days; lost 15 lbs., had many blood transfusions, and was basically bedridden until mid-July. It's has caused several other medical problems, a few that even required surgery! I'm still fighting the battle, and my doctor says it will be a year before I'll get over this. Ultracet doesn't seem to relieve osteoarthritis pain; neither does Tylenol for Arthritis. I have a hard time sleeping, and Tylenol PM doesn't seem to do much for that. My doctor says I cannot take Ibuprophen, Aspirin, or any anti-inflamatories. But I...
