Is Vioxx a narcotic?

Responses (1)

Hello vickie31,

Vioxx is in a class of drugs called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), so it is not a narcotic. Vioxx works by reducing substances that cause inflammation, pain, and fever in the body.

Have a nice evening,

thank you so much, what are side effects that you had while taking it??

ramdom 13 Nov 2010

The most famous side effects of Vioxx became public when Merck voluntarily withdrew it from the market because of concerns regarding stroke and heart attack after long term high dosage use.

Since it is a selective COX2 inhibitor, it would be expected to have less severe impact on the stomach lining (unlike many/most NSAIDs that are considered to be nonselective COX inhibitors).

Aside from these, it is largely expected to be similar to other NSAIDs (like ibuprofen, naproxen, etc.).

I research the substances and molecules listed.

Vickie,

I feel I must explain a situation which happened with your question which is the following:

I remembered the important additional information I wrote down on my comment, while I was doing so the member ramdom had already beat me to it , as I was writing my new comment down, I did not know he had already wrote down his comment which by the way is very right, and I did not copy any of his valuable information , when it comes to drugs.com I am very serious about what I do here. You can check for yourself if you want and have the time by clicking on my my avatar (my face) and the clicking on my stats.

I apologise for not giving you this most important information before.- I only hope you can forgive me with all due respect.-

Thank you.-
