Have you had experience with cox 2 inhibitor in conjunction with a heart murmur?

Dr. Robert Vogt Lowell
Pediatrics - Cardiology

In brief: Some

Being that i practice peds cardiology my experience with this is limited.
But one thing that i gather from your question is that you might be assuming that heart murmur = heart problem and this is not usually the case. Heart murmurs can be very normal sounds. Cox 2 inhibitors have been associated with increased incidence of cardiac death but you ask your doctor about your situation.
