Universal Drug Store Proactive Action Resulting From Continuing Concern About Patients’ Safety Ensures Supply of Safe Alternatives to Celebrex, Bextra

Share Article

Customer-orientation, concern for patients leads Universal Drug Store to identify both generic and name-brand alternatives for Bextra, Vioxx other Cox-2 pain killers.

A leading internet pharmacy says that because of its continued concern about the safety of Pfizer drugs Celebrex and Bextra for its patients it has identified supplies of safe pain relievers as an alternative to the two drugs as they continue to come under fire from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Jeff Uhl, president and CEO of http://www.UniversalDrugStore.com , says that Universal, which is a licensed and registered Manitoba-based pharmacy, has been directing its patients for some time to safe alternative pain relievers, both Brand name and Generic products, far in advance of today’s FDA action, which prompted Pfizer to withdraw Bextra from the market in U.S. and the European Community.

“Since we are health care professionals, the safety of our clients is always uppermost in our minds,” Uhl states. “It is that commitment that guides us to offer our customers safe and therapeutically effective Brand and Generic alternatives.

“We note with some dismay that Pfizer, which has vigorously worked to restrict the supply of safe prescriptions from outside the U.S. for American citizens, still does not recognize the potential safety problems with its Cox-2 pain relievers, choosing to disagree with the FDA findings, and offering only to work to add ‘expanded’ information on its labeling.

“It is ironic that Pfizer has been quick to push the FDA to question the safety of even their own products from registered Canadian pharmacies, but is now challenging the ability of the very same organization to identify a known safety problem with other of its products.

“That is why http://www.UniversalDrugStore.com, after careful evaluation of, and with concern for, the needs of our clients took the necessary steps to identify safe Brand and Generic alternatives.”
