Growing Concern About the Use of Anti-Inflammatory Pain Killers.
Since 2005, the American Heart Association has provided guidance on the use of anti-inflammatory drugs. To summarize, if you have heart disease, you should talk to your doctor before you use ibuprofen, naproxen, or any other anti-inflammatory medications.
If you have muscle or joint pain, conservative care, like that provided by physical therapists, is a great first choice.
We simply want you to be informed. Learn more about NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) at the Alliance for Rational Use of NSAIDS. https://www.nsaidalliance.com/
