High Doses Of Common Pain killers Can Double The Chances Of Heart attack

A study by researchers at the Oxford have found that high doses of the common painkiller like ibuprofen, which is available without prescription, doubles the risk of a heart attack if taken in high doses for a long time//. But the British Medical Journal study also explains that there was no danger for occasional users, and its risks were moderate when compared to the benefits for patients who depend on it to lead normal lives.

Studies had also shown that the risk of heart attacks and strokes were greatly increased with other NSAIDs but clear results have not yet emerged. The researchers from Oxford University found that, in patients taking COX-2s, the odds of a heart attack or stroke increased by 42% compared with placebo. They found that the odds were increased by 51% for high-dose ibuprofen (800mg three times a day) and 63% for high-dose diclofenac (75mg twice a day). They also found that Naproxen another NSAID, also had no association with any increased risk of cardiovascular events.
