If you are an arthritis patient and there is need for some pain relieve then its best you consult your doctor first, for what’s better.
“The current findings suggest that the elevated cardiovascular risk with NSAIDs may be partly due to drug-specific increases in blood pressure,” said principal investigator Dr. Frank Ruschitzka. He is co-head of the department of cardiology at the University Heart Centre in Zurich.
“Patients with osteoarthritis and arthritis should continue to consult their doctor before taking NSAIDs… and clinicians need to weigh the potential hazards of worsening blood pressure control when considering the use of these agents,” Ruschitzka added in a European Society of Cardiology news release.
So be adviced! Consult your doctor first.
