The problem, of course, as is the case with any medication, is the potential dangers associated with its use. NSAIDs are no exception, which is why the Food and Drug Administration recently strengthened an existing label warning on all non-aspirin NSAIDs, noting that their use may increase the risk for heart attack and stroke. This warning applies to all non-aspirin NSAIDs, prescription and over-the-counter.
So, when you experience pain, where will you turn? NSAIDs might seem the easier answer, but at what risk? Your life. Talk to your doctor for more information and consider nondrug options for pain relief, such as chiropractic care.
