Ibuprofen increases risk of heart attack

23 06 2009

It can increase your risk of life-threatening heart or circulation problems like a heart attack or stroke. The longer and more you use the higher the risk. People that had taken it in the last 3 months had a 24 % higher risk of heart attack then people who didn’t according to a large British study. People taking small-dose aspirin every day to avoid heart problems should avoid ibuprofen even more, the blood thinning advantage of aspirin is almost completely undone by the ibuprofen. I saw this all yesterday in the Internet after realizing my arrhythmia;s were worse after taking Advil. That is probably a coincidence but I am glad i now know the other side effects. Luckily Tylenol(Paracetamol) does not cause any of these things.
