In our ongoing rant against the evil pharmaceutical companies, I don''t think there's a more blatantly evil product on the market than Celebrex.  Not just for the potential side effects, but for the sheer audacity that the makers of Celebrex - knowing that the product can cause many severe side effects - continue to distribute this product.  As well as continue to advertise it on television as something that anyone in their right mind would actually ask their doctor if it was 'right for them'.

This commercial clocks in at an astounding 2 1/2 minutes.  Barely enough time to mention the following list of potential side effects....

 

May increase the chance of heart attack or stroke, leading to death.

 

Increases the chance of serious skin reactions or stomach and intestine problems, such as bleeding ulcers, which can occur without warning and may cause death.

 

Patients taking aspirin, or that have high blood pressure are at a greater risk of these symptoms.

 

Some patients experienced Indigestion, abdominal pain, and nausea.

 

Potential stomach bleeding and ulcers.

 

Not to be taken if you're pregnant, or have an allergic reaction to aspirin.

 

Possible kidney and liver damage.

 

 

 

And they proudly state that "Celebrex has never been taken off the market".  You can thank the pharmaceutical lobbyists for that.
