Celebrex Gets “Black Box” label from FDA

The FDA has finalized a new label for the drug Celebrex warning of increased cardiovascular risks such as heart attacks and strokes. The new label on Celebrex will recommend the drug be prescribed at the lowest dose and shortest time possible. The label will also carry a warning that Celebrex shouldn’t be used to treat pain associated with heart-bypass surgery. Sounds like a drug I want to take. . .
