West Palm Beach, FL (PRWEB) January 16, 2005
Dietary supplement company, KMS of West Palm Beach Florida as announced explosive sales growth of their Jointrex dietary supplement following recent problems with certain prescription drugs on the market as follows:
VIOXXÂ® (rofecoxib)1, has been withdrawn from the market following reports of problems such as Stevens-Johnson syndrome, a skin disorder, caused by BEXTRAÂ® (valdecoxib)2. Celebrex is the subject of interim reports raising the question of potential heart problems associated with CELEBREXÂ® (celecoxib)3,4,.
On October 18, 2004 the FDA announced:
"The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is advising doctors to consider alternatives to pain reliever Celebrex in the wake of a study that showed it increased the risk of heart attack and strokes at high doses."
In Additional Breaking News:
The National Cancer Institute, which was conducting the study for Pfizer, said patients in the clinical trial taking 800 milligrams of Celebrex had a 3.4 times greater risk of cardiovascular events compared to a placebo. For patients in the trial taking 400 milligrams of Celebrex the risk was 2.5 times greater. The average duration of treatment in the trial was 33 months.
In the 2,000 patient study, 15 individuals taking 400 mgs, 20 patients taking 800 mgs and 6 patients on placebo suffered either a cardiac-related death, heart attack or stroke.
In the wake of these and other announcements, consumers suffering from rheumatoid arthritis are looking for alternatives to prescription drug treatment that are formulated to be safe and effective and the ingredients in dietary supplement products like Jointrex can provide support and/or relief from the joint pain and inflammation associated with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis without the negative side effects of prescription drugs.
This theory is supported by recent sales spikes of Jointrex on a wholesale and retail level.
