NSAIDs Linked To Higher Incidence Of Heart Failure
Researchers from the University of Milan say the use of prescription-strength ibuprofen, naproxen and other commonly used pain relievers may be tied to a higher risk of heart failure. According to UPI, medicines like these fall into a category of painkillers known as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs--or NSAIDs. After analyzing the medical records of millions of patients across Europe, researchers found these medications may raise a person's relative risk of heart failure by nearly 20 percent. In fact, the greater the amount of NSAIDs the person is taking, the greater the risk of heart failure. The researchers concluded that people who'd been prescribed an NSAID within the preceding two weeks had a 19 percent increased risk of hospital admission for heart failure.
