Pain Killers and Heart Disease

According to a new study common painkillers boost the risk of a repeat heart attack so heart attack survivors should use these drugs as little as possible. These medicines are a group of drugs known as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) which are considered pretty safe when used occasionally in low to moderate doses to relieve pain. People with heart failure or high blood pressure should check with their doctors before taking NSAIDs.
