Off market!: All medicines can cause side effects, but many people have no, or minor, side effects. Check with your doctor if any of these most common side effects persist or become bothersome when using vioxx: constipation; diarrhea; dizziness; gas; headache; heartburn; nausea; sore throat; stomach upset; stuffy nose.

Vioxx: For several years, reports had surfaced about studies suggesting a possible increased risk of a cardiovascular event associated with the long-term use of the selective COX-2 inhibitor, Vioxx. Not long ago, these reports were confirmed and the production of Vioxx was stopped by the company.
