New Study Re-evaluates Cardiovascular Risks Of Anti-inflammatory Drugs

High dose of traditional NSAIDs also linked to heart disease. There has been much concern about the use of the anti-inflammatory drugs called COX-2 inhibitors such as Vioxx, Celebrex and Bextra. These non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), commonly used for arthritis, have been linked to increased risk of cardiovascular disease.

This recent study suggests that not only using COX-2 NSAIDs for inflammation but also high dose of traditional NSAIDs such as ibuprophen (Advil) or diclofenac (Voltaren) are also linked to raising the risk of cardiovascular disease, though the risk caused by naproxen (Aleve) was smaller.

It is clear that conventional medicine continues to struggle to have safe and effective therapies for chronic inflammation.
