Bextra (valdecoxib): “This Bextra saved my life after a failed Gallbladder surgery in 2002. A bile duct was clipped on my pancreas and bile leaked all over for almost 2 Days. After a stint was placed in my Pancreas, I had a life threatening Pancreatitis attacks and was circling the drain, rotation of narcotics, and Toradol every 4 hours I was unconscious most of the time. This pain doc said we have this new Drug Bextra that might help, pill form only. I said anything. I signed the form and within 24 hours, thats was all I took, all the tubes, and PICC line removed, and 2 more days later I was being discharged.. I ran out of my stock of 20mg Bextra in 2009 ( they had started to turn a little yellow ) but, since on Morphine and Fentanyl. . This Drug could solve a major part of the Opiate crisis, as it worked like a miracle drug, for so many inflammation related conditions. .”

Bextra (valdecoxib): “I have had migraines and irritable bowel syndrome since a child. I have developed curvature of the spine and degenerative discs. Bextra fixed them all. I am now on Percocet since the removal of Bextra. Percocet makes the pain tolerable but never takes the pain away like Bextra did.”

Bextra (valdecoxib): “I had pain and swelling in my ankle, from a ladder accident. Podiatrist prescribed Bextra. After 3 days, my scalp developed severe, oozing blisters. I stopped taking Bextra immediately, before any other major reactions occurred. I was lucky it didn't kill me.”

“Please bring this back on the market. Wonderful for inflammation of joint. No pain when taking Bextra. Celebrex is no match compared to Bextra when it comes to getting pain under control.”
