In December 2004, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued statements regarding the prescription drug Celebrex. The FDA asked the manufacturer of Celebrex, Pfizer, Inc., to agree to suspend advertising the drug, due to conflicting data regarding potentially harmful cardiovascular complications to those taking Celebrex. Celebrex, similar to Vioxx, was considered a safe alternative to Vioxx when Vioxx was pulled from the shelves. Recently, however, Celebrex has been linked to an increase of heart attack, stroke, and other cardiovascular difficulties.
