I was prescribed some Vioxx just before it was removed from the market to take very short term for some pain in my wrist. I only took 2 of the tablets. Should I be chucking the rest away?

Since Vioxx have been withdrawn from the market you would be taking the rest of the tablets at own risk should you decide to do so. Celebrex is similar and does not have the same side effects.
