Use Of Ibuprofen Safe For Short Periods

The painkiller Ibuprofen will not raise the chances of a heart attack if it were used only for a short duration. This has been revealed by Madrid based// researchers who studied the use of the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) in 4,975 patients who had had heart attacks, and 20,000 healthy individuals.

They found that taking NSAIDs for less than a year does not increase the risk of a heart attack. However, prolonged use can increase the risk of non-fatal heart attack by 20%. The researchers analyzed the heart attack risk associated with three of the most commonly used NSAIDs. Their results show that individual NSAIDs have different cardiovascular effects.

Taking Ibuprofen for over a year does not increase the risk of a heart attack, while long-term Diclofenac use causes a small increase in the risk of having an attack.

Long-term use of Naproxen can also have a protective effect according to the study.
