Vioxx and Heart Attacks
In a statement released on September 30, 2004, Merck & Company announced they were recalling their popular arthritis pain relief drug, Vioxx. Vioxx has also been a great source of income for Merck due to its popularity.
However, a recent clinical trial of 2,600 patients indicated that those using Vioxx over an extended period of time were at double the risk for heart attack and stroke. The medical community has long been concerned about the possible adverse side effects caused by prolonged use of Vioxx, but Merck had maintained that Vioxx was safe. Merck was wrong.
