What Is Bextra

Bexta is an anti-inflammatory drug in a class of drugs known as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID's).  Bextra reduces inflammation, fever and pain by reducing substances in the body that cause these symptoms.

Bextra was used to treat painful menstruation, osteoarthritis, inflammation and adult rheumatoid arthritis.  Also known as Valdecoxib, the Bextra brand name was manufactured and distributed by Pfizer.

Bextra was removed from the market in 2005 at the request of the FDA due to concerns that it was related to cardiovascular problems including stroke and heart attack.
