WHY THE FDA IS WARNING AMERICANS ABOUT IBUPROFEN
Many active people use the painkiller ibuprofen on an almost daily basis, other people use it when they have a headache, muscle pain and other health problems. So, ibuprofen, (also known by the name Motrin and Advil), and other anti-inflammatory drugs are in the news again, and not for a good reason.

Well, the FDA(Food and Drug Administration) is ramping up its warnings about the risks of these drugs for their role in causing heart attacks and strokes. The names of the other anti-inflammatory medications and drugs include Celebrex, Aleve, Naprosyn and Toredol. Note: you should know that aspirin was not included in this recent warning.
Many medical experts around the world claim that these drugs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or NSAIDs), have serious side effects and are a major cause of drug-induced injury. According to the latest statistics, the medical experts say that these drugs are estimated to cause at least 16,000 deaths per year and send 100,000 people to the emergency room in the U.S.
You should know that the most common problems caused by these nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or NSAIDs are: digestive ulcers and associated bleeding. Well, this is why some doctors and medical experts give a drug to reduce stomach acid to minimize the stomach-damaging effects of NSAIDs. But, you should be careful as well, because that drug is not without side effects of its own.
