Problems Mixing Anti-inflammatories

Your result of mixing bromelain with Vioxx is not unexpected. You should expect similar results with any traditional NSAID mixed with Vioxx. Bromelain is listed as an anti-inflammatory, and as such it reduces production of prostaglandins associated with inflammation. The source of the compound ('natural', 'herbal', 'alternative medicine', or 'pharmaceutical') is of no significance.
