The non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug Vioxx was approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration in 1999 as a treatment for the acute pain associated with osteoarthritis or menstrual symptoms in adults and rheumatoid arthritis in adults and children both. But in September 2004, Vioxx manufacturer Merck issued a voluntary recall of the drug due to increased risks of heart attack and stroke.
It is estimated that 20 million or more patients took Vioxx for pain relief before the drug was pulled from shelves. Thousands of lawsuits are pending against the drug manufacturer. If you or a loved one took Vioxx and then suffered a heart attack or stroke, or if a loved one died of a heart attack or stroke after taking Vioxx, The Insiders of The McMahan Law Firm are ready to help you get the financial compensation you deserve.
