Vioxx (rofecoxib) is now approved for rheumatoid arthritis

Vioxx (rofecoxib) is now approved for rheumatoid arthritis... just like other COX-2s...Bextra (valdecoxib) and Celebrex (celecoxib).

It reduces swelling, joint pain, and tenderness.

It works as well as naproxen...and might cause less GI problems than regular NSAIDs (naproxen, ibuprofen, ASA).
