Vioxx

No Prescription

Vioxx is a new kind of painkiller prescribed in the treatment of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, painful menstruation (dysmenorrhea), and other types of acute pain. It is a member of the family of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) called "COX-2 inhibitors." Other drugs in this family include Celebrex and Bextra.

Like older NSAIDs such as aspirin, Motrin, and Naprosyn, these newer drugs are believed to fight pain and inflammation by inhibiting the effect of a natural enzyme called COX-2. Unlike the older medications, however, the newer drugs do not interfere with a similar substance, called COX-1, which exerts a protective effect on the lining of the stomach. The COX-2 inhibitors are therefore less likely to cause the bleeding and ulcers that sometimes accompany sustained use of the older NSAIDs.

Although COX-2 inhibitors offer many of the same benefits as aspirin, they do not share its blood-thinning effects. If you're taking low-dose aspirin to reduce the risk of a heart attack, you'll need to continue taking it in addition to Vioxx.
