A new study published in the British Medical Journal associated arthritis medications also known as NSAIDs (e.g., ibuprofen, naproxen, and Celebrex), with a 35 percent increased risk of heart attacks. The effect begins within one week of starting the medication and persists for as long as it’s taken. Approximately 30,000 – 50,000 people die from NSAID usage in the U.S. each year.
Today, everyone knows somebody suffering from serious pain. The dirty secret is that many of these people have had heart attacks caused by the very pain medications they thought were helping them.With heart attacks being the number one cause of death in the U.S., and arthritis meds being some of the most frequently prescribed, the new study is one of the most important health breakthroughs of the year.
