Anti-Inflammatory Drugs: FDA Issues New Warning

New anti-Inflammatory drugs warning is based on a comprehensive review of new safety information…

Why do millions of people every day watch commercials where the list of side effects is longer than the commercial itself?

You could be exposing yourself to a 340% increased risk of heart attack or stroke…

Can you believe this madness?

Dear Friend,

Why do people continue to spend their hard-earned money on those products?

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is strengthening an existing label warning for non-aspirin nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.

(NSAIDs) increase heart attack or stroke risks…

The biggest problem is pain medications you’re currently taking are slowly eating away at your vital organs and literally increasing your suffering and amount of pain in your body…

 You probably know non-aspirin nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are used to treat inflammation, mild to moderate pain and fever.

Given widespread use of anti-Inflammatory drugs via prescription and over-the-counter (OTC)…

It is important all physicians and consumers be aware and take careful note.

NSAIDs including:

  • aspirin
  • ibuprofen (Motrin and Advil)
  • Aleve (naproxen sodium)
  • Celebrex (celecoxib)
  • Feldene (piroxicam)
  • Voltaren (diclofenac sodium)

All the above are used extensively in the United States in treatment of arthritis, menstrual cramps, headaches, colds and the flu.

Despite anti-Inflammatory drugs widespread use, the emerging picture is it may produce short-term benefits with long-term problems.

For example…

Over 7,500 deaths each year in the United States are directly attributable to NSAID use.

And use of NSAIDs in osteoarthritis many of these drugs actually accelerate progression of joint destruction.

In context to side effects, NSAIDs can cause minor or more serious problems like:

  • gastrointestinal upset
  • headaches and dizziness
  • peptic ulcers
  • strokes
  • heart attacks…

NSAIDs are therefore recommended for only short periods.

Nonetheless, millions of Americans use NSAIDs on a daily basis.

More than 70 million prescriptions for NSAIDs are written each year in the United States.

And with over the counter (OTC) use included, more than 30 billion doses of NSAIDs are consumed annually in the United States alone.

Based upon a new review by the FDA the widespread use of these drugs is problematic.

The FDA first addressed the risk of having a heart attack or stroke with NSAID use back in 2005 that resulted in a boxed warning on prescription drug labels.

Since then, they’ve reviewed a variety of new safety information for prescription and OTC forms of NSAIDs including a large meta-analysis of clinical trials for safety of these drugs.

The FDA’s new warning includes the following:

  • Risk of heart attack or stroke may increase as early as the first weeks of using an NSAID
  • Risk may increase the longer you use the NSAID
  • Risk is greater at higher doses
  • NSAIDs can increase the risk of heart attack or stroke in patients with or without heart disease or risk factors for heart disease.
  • In general, patients with heart disease or risk factors have a greater likelihood of heart attack or stroke following NSAID use than patients without these risk factors because they have a higher risk at baseline.

Patients treated with NSAIDs following a first heart attack were more likely to die in the first year after the heart attack…

Compared to patients who were not treated with NSAIDs after their first heart attack.

There is an increased risk of heart failure with NSAID use.

You see, many of today’s most popular pain medications aspirin, ibuprofen, Advil, Aleve, Celebrex and Motrin are designed to fight inflammation.

Tylenol and Panadol sre designed to block incoming pain signals.

None of them target what may actually be at the root of your pain…

Fibrin is a natural substance in your body which helps in wound healing.

Fibrin is the scar tissue and scabs are made of…

Here’s how Fibrin works – your body senses an injury and it can be as minor as small bump, scratch or even just sudden heat or coldness and your body reacts by:

  • Sends white blood cells to the irritation or injury to fight infection, causing inflammation and swelling.
  • Releases fibrin to essentially “seal off the site” with a strong protective mesh

Normally the site is healed and fibrin breaks down, inflammation subsides and everything goes back to normal.

But many times our bodies fail to “call off” the fibrin.

So like a button stuck in the “ON” position, fibrin continues to build up around the site, then harden causing further inflammation and often excruciating pain that just won’t go away.

Research studies show if you’re over 50, once inflammation is triggered it’s much less likely to go back down.

Meanwhile, you keep tossing all these painkillers at the fibrin.

Based on the FDA’s comprehensive review and recommendations from advisory committees, they are requiring label changes to reflect following conclusions:

A large number of studies support the finding that NSAIDs cause an increased risk of serious cardiovascular events.

Estimates of increased risk ranged from 10 to 50 percent or more, depending on the drugs and the doses studied.

Patients treated with NSAIDs following a first heart attack were more likely to die in the first year after the heart attack…

Compared to patients who were not treated with NSAIDs after their first heart attack.

There is also an increased risk of heart failure with NSAID use.

To reduce risks of NSAIDs…

The FDA recommends using lowest effective amount for shortest possible time.

As well as to seek medical attention immediately if after taking a NSAID, a person develops symptoms such as:

  • chest pain
  • shortness of breath
  • sudden weakness or numbness in one part or side of body
  • sudden slurred speech…

If the FDA is issuing a bigger warning on a drug, you can be assured it is a serious issue.

The No.1 reason to avoid television is two-thirds of all ads you see are for drugs…

When you watch TV, you’re allowing yourself to be conditioned and programmed, in other words manipulated and brainwashed into believing drugs are the answer.

Do these ads work?

Statistics show over 90 percent of Americans believe health is directly related to the amount of drugs consumed.

In fact, these ads are so effective, people who have never seen a doctor are now asking their doctor for specific drugs…

Don’t think you are immune to the power of these ads?

Remember, cigarettes ads used to be advertised on television…

These ads were proven to be so effective at subconsciously motivating people to buy cigarettes they were banned.

Bottom line: are you expected to decide whether the problem in using NSAIDs is simply a knee jerk reaction or are biochemical band-aids which are not suitable for long-term use?

Maybe you can avoid using anti-inflammatory drugs, NSAIDs entirely?

Conventional medicine focuses on masking of symptoms via drugs, instead of identifying and eliminating the root cause.

Naturopathic medicine focuses on removal of pain. After all, there is no such thing as a NSAID deficiency…
