Vioxx (rofecoxib) molecule

Vioxx (rofecoxib) molecule, computer model. Vioxx was a COX-2 inhibitor painkilling drug marketed by Merck & Co. It was withdrawn in 2004 due to fears that its use may increase the risk of having a heart attack or stroke. In August 2005, a US court awarded a woman $253.4m (£141m) in compensation after her husband died while taking Vioxx. The finding could open up a path for thousands of similar lawsuits from people whose health suffered while on Vioxx.

In this molecule, carbon is pink, oxygen green, hydrogen white, and sulphur cyan
