Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are life-threatening

The FDA has warned about the dangers of ibuprofen

Copper news based on the materials of The New York Times: F.D.A. Is Set to Toughen Nonaspirin Warnings 

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has warned of dangerous side effects associated with taking nonsteroidal anti–inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) other than aspirin - for example, ibuprofen. According to the FDA, these drugs increase the risk of stroke and heart attack.

The labels of drugs in this category indicate that these drugs "may cause" an increased risk of stroke and heart attack, but the Office insists that recent studies have shown that this risk is more significant. According to their data, taking drugs is associated with an increased risk in the range of 10 to 50%, depending on the dose of the drug. At the same time, millions of people around the world take this type of painkillers.

For the first time, information that taking NSAIDs is associated with an increased likelihood of stroke and heart attack appeared back in 2005. The Department recalled that patients suffering from problems with the cardiovascular system most often fall into the risk group, but even in healthy people taking medications increases the risk of stroke and heart attack.

In the near future, the FDA will ask manufacturers of NSAIDs to change drug labels, indicating more accurate information on them, namely that such drugs do not "can cause", but "cause" an increased risk of stroke and heart attack. In addition, the Management believes that labels should indicate that the risk may be observed at the very beginning of treatment.
