When the full side effects of Pfizer's anti-inflammatory and pain-killing drug became apparent, the primary concern for many of the people who had been taking the drug to help with the management of their arthritis symptoms was the implications to their health. As it was revealed that the risk of enduring a major cardiovascular episode was two and a half times in former Celebrex patients what it was in the general population, this is enormously understandable. It is also understandable that for many patients, the next step in coping with the unexpected side effects of Pfizer's drug is to contact a Celebrex law firm.
Most of the patients taking Celebrex were those dealing with the often-debilitating pain and compromised movement of arthritis, a diagnosis that can be upsetting to receive. Even in the day of modern medical miracles, there remains no cure for this condition, and the best that can be hoped for is that lifestyle changes and medication will impact enough to minimise the symptoms sufficiently to allow the patient to continue with life as best they can. Thus, it is no surprise that a drug like Celebrex was greeted so optimistically to the market place, and that it is with crushed spirits that many patients are now contacting Celebrex law firms.
It has been said that too often people file for compensation, seeking, it would seem, to place the responsibility for their own life choices upon some faceless corporation. Of course eating too much McDonald's food will make you fat, eating too much of anything will. But the case of Celebrex is not one of insufficient responsibility - it is simply a matter of a trusted pharmaceutical company who gave to long suffering patients a holy grail. Arthritis patients eagerly and trustingly took Celebrex, hoping for an end to their daily difficulties, only to discover that their health had been further compromised. For many, contacting a Celebrex law firm is not a case of simply getting some financial recompense - though many will need this money in order to cope with future medical bills - but simply to stand up and say this: we trusted you, and you let us down. This will be a kind of medicine in itself.
