Common Painkillers Linked to the Higher Risk of Heart Failure in Seniors
A new study says that common painkillers may increase the risk of heart failure. Such non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, as ibuprofen, naproxen, and diclofenac, are widely used for treatment of pain and inflammation.
For their study, the researcher have analysed data for the 10 million users from the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Italy and Germany, and compared them with data of people who have never taken this kind of drugs.
The researchers from University of Milano-Bicocca, Italy, found taking NSAIDs increased the risk of being taken to hospital with heart failure by 19%. Since most people in the study were seniors - and those on NSAIDs were, in general, in poorer health - UK health experts suggested the findings had very little relevance for most patients under 65, but may be a concern for elderly patients.
