chloesmom Posted August 26, 2004 Share Posted August 26, 2004 Hi all, For a year now, I have been taking 25mg of vioxx every day as a COX 2 enzyme inhibitor because there is some kind of evidence that this will suppress tumor growth. Now, today, I see this big news story about "sudden cardiac death" so much more frequently seen in those people who take Vioxx. Granted, this is in the 50 mg per day dose, but, how many times do I really need to see my life flash before my eyes? I am allergic to sulfa, which is an ingredient of Celebrex, otherwise I would be taking that. I really need to know that I'm doing everything I can to keep this cancer away from me, and taking vioxx every day just helped me feel like I was doing something. Now I don't know what to do..... Always something. Anybody got any ideas? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
