allergic reactions to Bextra

There's growing concern about allergic reactions to Bextra.

There are now several reports linking Bextra (valdecoxib) to cases of anaphylaxis and life-threatening skin reactions... Stevens-Johnson syndrome...exfoliative dermatitis...etc.

Tell patients taking Bextra that these reactions are very rare. But if it does happen have them discontinue the drug at the first sign of a rash or swelling.
