In The Habit Of Taking Painkillers For Your Chronic Headache? Time To Switch Over

It has been found out that women who regularly take painkillers are more prone to develop high blood pressure than women who don’t take any. Infact there is a 2 fold increased risk // , which draws attention.

The regular use of these drugs by millions of people may help explain the growing incidence of hypertension that has been steadily increasing. High blood pressure is a major contributor to heart disease and strokes.

The regular use of acetaminophen and related drugs triples the risk of kidney disease, and by some measures accounts for as much as 20 percent of all kidney disease requiring dialysis or transplants. Acetaminophen, aspirin and ibuprofen are the three most commonly used drugs for chronic headaches and arthritis.

Older women taking acetaminophen daily (> 500 mg) were 93 percent more likely to develop hypertension than those not taking the drugs, while younger women taking the same dosage were 99 percent more likely.

For ibuprofen, older women taking at least 400 milligrams per day were 78 percent more likely to have high blood pressure while younger women were 60 percent more likely.

In general, it has been concluded that the increase in risk is directly related to dosage, but additional studies may be needed with more number of subjects.

It would not be possible for women to stop using the pain relievers abruptly. However alternatives can be taken wherever possible (Low back pain) to reduce the associated risk.
