Can celebrex cause heart disease doc?

Has anyone - docs preferred - heard whether celebrex causes heart disease like Vioxx? if one has taken it for five years or more and now has atrial fibrillation is there a likely correlation?

It's an open question - although there is debate, wikipedia has a good summary of the tos and fros

Speak to your Doctor - and possibly the American Heart Association/ British Heart Foundation.

I'd like to know why, if it does, or why Vioxx did. You would think it would have the opposite effect, since it's an anti-inflammatory and coronary artery disease begins with an inflammatory process.
