All nsaids, with the exception of celebrex, (celecoxib) block the heart benefits of aspirin! What does that means?!

? correctness. Ibuprofen clearly blocks Aspirin effectiveness. While theoretically the others could, I am unaware of any evidence that the others interfere.
See details. It means that Celebrex (celecoxib) does not interfere with the antiplatelet effects of Aspirin and Aspirin will continue to have its blood thinning properties left intact.

Why were vioxx and bextra taken out of market but not celebrex (celecoxib)? Does celebrex (celecoxib) increase risk of heart attack and stroke for at-risk patients?

Risk/Benefit? For several years, reports had surfaced about a possible increased risk of a cardiovascular event associated with vioxx. Once these reports were confirmed; the production of vioxx was stopped by the company. Shortly thereafter, studies found that patients taking Celebrex (celecoxib) or Bextra were also at risk. Life-threatening skin reaction with chronic use of Bextra was published at that time. Read more...
Political reasons. Vioxx was an amazing anti-inflammatory but merck suppressed data suggest that it tips the balance little bit more likely to have a heart attack if you have heart disease, it does not give you heart disease. Because they suppressed this data, they were coming under immense pressure to do something and they pulled vioxx the market. All other anti-inflammatories can tip the balance the same way.

I 'm taking medication after heart attack, can I take celecoxib 200mg together?

My advice: NO. First of all, you need to list all your meds. Are you taking any others besides asa? The association of nsaids and cardiac risk is a controversial one. There is little evidence that a 200 (pyrethins and piperonyl butoxide) mg dose of Celecoxib imposes risk. However, i would personally not advise patients to restart Celecoxib after suffering a heart attack at 46 years of age. Read more...
