Apparently an anesthesiologist named Scott Reuben has plead guilty to "faking dozens of research studies that were published in medical journals." He did research for Pfizer which includes Celebrex, Lyrica, Vioxx and others. He had been fabricating reports that have been published in medical journals for THIRTEEN YEARS!!! He is facing a 10 year prison sentence and a $250,000 fine.
I've been apprehensive about taking my Celebrex (and somewhat the Lyrica, too) after I googled for Celebrex side effects. I realize that almost all pharmaceutical drugs have many less than desireable side effects but now after this fraud thing, I don't know if I want to continue taking either one. *sigh*
