Vioxx

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 alergic 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?

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.

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...
