Approved in the U.S. late in 2001, Bextra is prescribed to treat osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and other painful conditions. VioxxCelebrex, and Bextra are all part of the family of COX-2 inhibitor drugs. These drugs were developed to provide pain relief as effectively as older, nonprescription drugs known as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or NSAIDs. However, NSAIDs are known to cause gastric distress, while Bextra and other COX-2 inhibitor drugs provide the benefits associated with NSAIDs, without the stomach discomfort.

Even at the time of its approval, controversy surrounded Bextra. It is alleged that while the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) was aware of dangerous skin-related side effects that could happen with the use of the drug, it was approved. Stevens-Johnson Syndrome is a very serious skin condition, as is Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis.

Both of these skin diseases are potential side effects of Bextra, but Pfizer is only now putting a black-label warning regarding these conditions on the package. With Vioxx being pulled from the market in late 2004, there is renewed focus and studies of Bextra and other COX-2 inhibitors’ side effects. Bextra is manufactured by Pfizer, the world’s largest drug maker. Pfizer has responded to suspicions about Bextra by claiming that there is no evidence to link the drug with an increased risk of heart attacks or strokes. However, both Pfizer and the FDA will be conducting further studies of Bextra and other COX-2 inhibitors on the heart.

In 2004, more than 23.9 million prescriptions were filled in the United States for Celebrex and 12.9 million for Bextra. Pfizer, the world’s largest drug manufacturer makes both products and is reluctant to pull the money-makers from the market.
