What if there was a food that would outperform celebrex. Would you want to know about it? It's called the Mangosteen Fruit of Southeast Asia. The Xanthones in the Mangosteen has been proven and documented to outperform clebrex and actually is considered the most power anti-inflamatory known. It's all natural and NO side effects. Educate yourself www.InformationOnMangosteen.info Facts are facts and the science backs it up. You can contact me through the website and request an info pak. Let me stress that quality of the product is extreamly important if you want to see solid results. It has made people with fibro pain free!

Considering the fraud of the pharmaceutical industry and your pain and suffering and loss of your livelihood. Minimum 200 million with 100 million in punitive damages plus the cost of the attorney and specialists testifying in court. Good luck.

Denise, May I make a suggestion? You should take some time and educate yourself on Mangosteen and Xanthones. What if there was a food that would outperform celebrex. Would you want to know about it? It's called the Mangosteen Fruit of Southeast Asia. The Xanthones in the Mangosteen has been proven and documented to outperform clebrex and actually is considered the most power anti-inflamatory known. It's all natural and NO side effects.

Would it not be worth it to try it for yourself and see what results you might have?

New studies are saying celebrex is actually better than ibuprofen and naproxen. In fact, the ibuprofen and naproxen are both the same as Vioxx for how an increase of heart failure is.
Odd thing is that you have a much high rate of heart attack if you don't take celebrex.
something to think about.
Let me ask you a question. If there was a food having zero side effects that was proven to outperform Vioxx, Celebrex, ibuprofen and just about anything else, would you want to know more about it? I take that as a yes. It's called Mangosteen fruit of Southeast Asia. Not many people yet know about it here in the US. There is hundreds of years of folk-lore and decades of scientific research to back it up and it can be proven! For more information and research, go to
www.InformationOnMangosteen.info or if you would like to order some and try it for yourself go to www.CreateMySuccessToday.com Let me STRESS that the quality has everything to do with your results. It has to be the WHOLE fruit puree and only one company has that www.CreateMySuccessToday.com it's called Xango Juice I can provide more facts if you need it. You can contact me through the website or email me at [email protected] put request mangosteen info in the subject line.

I was on celebrex for 2 years and had a heart attack-2 stents placed to take care of the blockage. I was taking 200mg capsules 2-3 times per day. I kept having recurring chest pain after my heart attack and had 3 angiograms to make sure everything was ok. I loved the relief that celebrex gave me with my arthritis pain but I know this is what caused my HA. No doctor ever told me to quit taking it, but after they took out my gall bladder (which had no stones) and I kept having the chest pain I quit celebrex on my own. Guess what? No more chest pain. Some of you that are having no problems are probably on a lower dose. I would recommend staying away from this drug!

There are many wonderful holsum remedies available in our markets. The natural approach is always the best. The American Medical Society is not that old. Yet, we have eaten the fruits of their labor (lost lives). Try a more healthy approach, but please, please, don't try the Pyramid Mangosteen way. You can get the same products alot cheaper without making another corporation/business owner rich!!!

I was on celebrex for 4 years. It was awesome. Then my wife had a massive stroke from Vioxx at 48 years old. Needless to say I stopped the celebrex. I did not realize that it was causing severe balance problems. There were no problems with the inner ears, nor chest pains. I look at the full bottle of it at times, and wish I could have the relief it gave me. I had back surgery in 2003, and have not been able to do much work since. There isn't anything that the Drs will do now because I'll end up paralyzed or in a wheel chair. I'll take Norco over that scenario the rest of my life.

My now 84 year old mother was on Celebrex because of arthritis in her hip. The pain was still too much, so her pcf doubled the dosage. Within a year I believe she began having TIAs, falling, and began having balance issues. 5 or 6 years ago she went in to have her heart checked, and they admitted her for a quad bypass. During the surgery she had a stroke, and came out of the surgery with one eye pointing in the wrong direction. They took her off of Celebrex after her heart surgery. She never regained the ability to walk, more than to stand and take a few steps, but never had any more TIAs. About two years ago her left ear just stopped working. Making sure she is properly cared for has all but destroyed my life, and I still look at the bottle of Celebrex often.

I took Celebrex a short time before I took Vioxx and according to the medical reports Celebrex was much stronger at first when introduced to the public.
Now my attorney has me in a class action suit with Pfizer for settlement since the Cox inhabitor was in both drugs and mis-advertised.

I have had 3 heart attacks and 2 strokes because of this drug.

Pfizer was the first to use the Cox inhabitor and their employees were advisors to the FDA when Merck applied for a fast track approval for Vioxx and FDA allowed the toxic poisen to go for a patent.
Pfizer already knew that the Cox inhabitor would cause strokes and heart attacks with a conflict of interest they recommended to the FDA to approve the drug Vioxx since the Cox had been already used in Celebex. This would create a lot of revenue for the stock market and the investors. Fraud was done to the public and the consumers who took these drugs. The Cox inhabitor is a toxic drug that kills and injures your body, slowly poisens and distroys it one organ at a time. the cox inhabitor was discovered by a scientist at Harvard University who was working for DOW chemical company at the time using the university lab for his experiments. Both companies Merck and Pfizer has made a lot of money with their killer drugs.

I have done a lot of research on Vioxx and Merck and the Cox Inhabitor and have lots of information on why Merck got away with killing 88,000 innocent consumers and injuring 169,000 with heart attacks and strokes. There is no law in this country that can prosecute any prescription drug manufacturing company for a defective drug they produce and kills. The United States Congress omitted in 1962 from the FDA Act when they created the FDCA ACT any and all prescription drugs and medical devises. This put a shield of protection on the prescription drug companies and left the public at risk. There is NO LAW that any Court in the US can prosecute for killing with a toxic pill. over the years Congress has continued to delete and omitt from any product liability Acts of law by preempting the law so that it can never be changed. We are at the governments mercy and the prescription drug companies who pay the Health, Human Services large sums of cash to keep the shield of protection on the drug companies. Vioxx was no accident but intentional and with malice. We as consumers have no equal protection under the law. You can not prosecute only settle with what the will offer. take it or leave it attitude they have since they are in controll. You can not win in a court of law if you suit for wrongful death or try to prosecute for the murder of anyone. The judge has no statutes or laws to use to prosecute for murder with a prescription drug or a medical devise. Ask the Attorney Generals of your state, or any attorney. Is there a law to prosecute for killing with a defective prescription drug? NONE
Why do you think the many deaths have not been prosecuted or the doctors who administrated the drugs. It is a deadly scam. Look at Michael Jackson, Nicole Smith and many others. No matter if a doctor gives it to you or you take it yourself. NO LAW !

http://inhousegeneric.com is an honest and genuine online pharmacy. We were not sure at first because this was our first order of generic medication from this pharmacy. Although it takes a bit long because it got stuck with custom, we are completely sastisfied with this online pharmacy.
You won't be disappointed with them. Their customer service is great too although they need to improve their phone system a bit more. If you need to call them just be sure to call during their working hours. Other than that we highly and sincerely recommend this online pharmacy to everyone.

Naturally, I am skeptical of everything online. http://inhousegeneric.com is legitimate. I placed my first order for the smallest amount possible. It arrived sooner than expected. I didn't pay the extra money for speedy air mail. I placed another order that was much larger and it came right on time. I will definitely use this company again for even larger orders now that I trust them. They also give you discounts every time you place an order which is cool. One thing to keep in mind is if you place a larger order, they will send half in one shipment, and then the other half after that to avoid customs scrutinizing your package. I am very happy, I no longer need to pay tons of money to see a doctor and therapist (and have them tell me a bunch of stuff I already know) in order to get my medication.
