16 Aug

reports Michelle Bally, PhD, MSc. The pain relievers include the NSAIDs ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin), naproxen (Aleve),  diclofenac (Zipsor, Voltaren) and celecoxib (Celebrex). odds of having a heart attack were 20% to 50% higher when using one of the NSAIDs than when not using one, the percentage varies with dosage and length of use, but on average, the risk for a heart attack link to NSAIDs is only about 0.5% to 1% per year.

Self-defense:  If you need an NSAID, use the lowest possible dose for the shortest possible time.
