Garrett Law Offices are currently investigating potential claims for injuries suffered as a result of taking Vioxx® (rofecoxib).
On September 30, 2004, Merck & Company announced that it was withdrawing its arthritis drug Vioxx® from the market worldwide due a clinical trial that showed Vioxx® increased the risks of cardiovascular events, such as heart attack, stroke, and blood clots. What Merck did not state was that the clinical trial results were not a surprise since researchers have been warning about a connection between Vioxx® and an increased risk of heart attack and stroke for many years.

More than 84 million people have taken Vioxx® worldwide and it is believed that more than 2 million were taking the painkiller at the time of the recall. The widespread use of Vioxx® was the result of an aggressive marketing campaign by Merck, who spent approximately $100 million per year promoting the dangerous drug.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has estimated that Vioxx® may be responsible for as many as 27,000 heart attacks and cardiac deaths between 1999 and 2003. The FDA reached this number by analyzing a database of 1.4 million patients in the Kaiser Permanente health care system. That analysis also led to the finding that Vioxx® users were more likely to suffer a heart attack or sudden cardiac death than those who took a competing drug.
