Common Painkillers Raise Risk of Heart Attack

Many randonneurs take ibuprofen as a matter of course to prevent feeling pain during a long ride. Others wait until an injury occurs and then take it.

A recently published article says a study suggests taking common painkillers such as ibuprofen for only a week can significantly raise the risk of having a heart attack.

The added chances of a heart attack were more pronounced among users on high doses of the painkillers.

Use for between eight and 30 days at a high dose was “particularly harmful”.
