Celebrex Mentioned on Simpsons

Tonight's episode of the Simpsons involved buying prescriptions drugs from Canada.

Two of the drugs mentioned by the Pfizer dancers were Vioxx and Celebrex. While many people may be familiar with the Vioxx recall and the associated lawsuits, not many are familiar with Celebrex. Celebrex is an arthritis pain reliever that has shown to increase the chance of heart problems. However, Celebrex has not been recalled. Because of the known issues Celebrex is only recommended for use as a last resort. Many Celebrex lawsuits may be on the horizon.

Here is a CNN article on Celebrex.
