OTC Painkillers Double Risk Of Death From Heart Problems

Kevin Fielden pills

A 2011 study in the American Journal of Medicine revealed older patients with hypertension and coronary artery disease who regularly used nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen, naproxen, etc. for chronic pain more than doubled the risk of a fatal cardiovascular event.


All too often older patients are told by their medical doctors that they have arthritis and are advised to take these types of over-the-counter painkillers or prescription medications that drastically raise the chances of fatal heart attacks. In many cases chiropractic care combined with the appropriate exercises for your specific problem can reduce the mechanical pressure on joints that have arthritic degeneration and eliminate the pain without the need for medications.
