A new medical research has shown serious effects of ibuprofen which causes damage to our health. Medical research reveals things we do not know could be good or bad for the health. It also provides relevant information about new diseases and risk factors and other health-related discoveries.

This new medical research is about pain relievers, the ones that can be bought almost anywhere like at a pharmacy, gas station, superstores, etc. Pain relievers help reduce headaches, bone and joint aches, back pain, toothaches and other kinds of pain. Aside the fact that pain relievers are prescribed by doctors, most people also prescribe this drug by themselves. Studies revealed that there is an amount of time in which drugs like pain relievers should be taken.

This medical study shows the side effects of drugs like ibuprofen and other NSAIDS which is their ability to increase the risks of heart attack by up to 50%. The instructions on the label of the drug also emphasize warnings about ulcers, stroke and ulcers.

In this medical research, an experiment was conducted on over 446,000 patients from Canada and Europe then their medical data was analyzed and it was observed that over 60,000 people had a cardiac disorder. These people usually take NSAIDS for the minimum of a week on a regular basis then when it is a month to cardiac emergency, these pills are being taken. On the contrary, these medications have not been taken by such a patient for a year.

This shows that short term regular use of some medication is linked with increased risk of developing heart attack. People who already have heart conditions are at a greater risk of developing another heart condition. Therefore, people who are likely to have a surgery related to a heart disorder should not take this medicine before or immediately after the surgery. They could develop another heart condition, rheumatoid arthritis. Accordingly, Ibuprofen like Motrin, Advil or naproxen medicines which include aleve and celebrex are the types observed in this study. It shows that high dosages of these medications increase the risks of developing heart attack and other heart-related diseases.

Research also shows that those who have allergies to aspirin or other NSAID should not take ibuprofen as well as asthmatic patients.

In the same way, people who have been diagnosed of health conditions like blood clotting, heart diseases, heart attack or failure, high blood pressure, liver diseases, kidney damage or diseases, diabetes, high cholesterol, connective tissue diseases like lupus, Marfan syndrome or Sjogren’s syndrome or stomach ulcers are advised to seek medical advice about their intake of ibuprofen.

Additionally, pregnant women should not take ibuprofen during the last three months of their pregnancy in order not to affect the unborn child. It is also very dangerous for children under the age of 2 to take ibuprofen without the doctor’s prescription.

In addition, a study by Danish researchers showed that ibuprofen increases the level of myocardial infarction by 50%. It also showed that Ibuprofen is the major cause of heart attacks. It is important to note that pain relievers have the tendency of making someone to develop various heart conditions.

So, it is important to inform your doctor about the pain relievers you are taken regularly for pain because it can cause severe problems to the heart.
