NSAIDs linked to increased heart failure risk, study finds

AANP SmartBrief | Sep 29, 2016

A case-control study in The BMJ found patients who used prescription nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs within the preceding 14 days had a 19% higher relative risk of hospital admission for heart failure, compared with those who used the drugs more than about six months in the past. The findings, based on medical records for over 92,000 hospital admissions for heart failure and about 8.2 million controls, identified nine drugs particularly linked to an increased heart failure risk and found a greater risk with very high doses of certain drugs.
