Over-The-Counter Heart Dangers

Over-the-Counter Heart Dangers You Should Know

Most people pop aspirin and other over-the-counter pain relievers without a second thought. But mounting evidence suggests that there should be cause for concern.

In a recent study, researchers found that "NSAID (aspirin, ibuprofen, Advil, Motrin, etc.) use was associated with an increased risk of death or myocardial infarction (heart attack) by up to 5 times that of non-users, according to the Nordic Association for the Publication of BCPT.

There was also a clear indication for a dose-related response in risk associated with NSAID therapy, supporting a causal association.

Thus, evidence from observational studies is accumulating, suggesting that "NSAIDs are a major public health concern due to the widespread use of these drugs."

Make sure to talk to your doctor about the use of over-the-counter pain relievers and whether they are right for you. You should always be aware of the side effects of drugs even if they are sold over-the-counter and seem relatively safe.
