NSAIDs Drugs May Risk Heart Failure

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may raise a person's relative risk of heart failure by nearly 20 percent

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may raise a person's relative risk of heart failure by nearly 20 percent, according to the analysis of medical records of nearly 10 million patients.

Use of prescription-strength ibuprofen, naproxen and other commonly used pain relievers may be tied to a higher risk of heart failure, researchers report.

Medicines like these fall into a category of painkillers known as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). These medications may raise a person's relative risk of heart failure by nearly 20 percent, according to the analysis of medical records of nearly 10 million patients.
