Pain Relievers May Cause Heart Problems

Painkillers may slightly increase the risk of heart problems if taken in high doses and for a long time. Two types of painkillers that are usually taken are ibuprofen and diclofenac in general.

A study shows painkiller carry a greater risk for smokers and people that are overweight.
A research team conducted test on more than 353,000 patient records from 639 separate clinical trials to assess the impact of medication of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory. They showed that for every 1,000 people taking the drug, there will be three additional cases of heart attack, four cases of heart failure, and one death each year as a result of taking painkillers.

In short, the number of heart attacks will raise eight per 1,000 people per year. Under normal circumstances be 11 per 1,000 people per year with the consumption of drugs. Three per thousand per year seems to be a fairly low risk, but the decision to take the drug or not, must still be done by the patient. So if you are a patient you should discuss with it your doctor and that you are the one who must make the decision about whether to take this risk in your everyday life.

Researchers say this should not be a concern for people who take painkillers occasionally, such as for headaches.
