Well, isn't this special....I have to take 375mg naproxen (prescription) for pain of RA......although I'm only taking it once every other day right now......maybe I should go back to 6-8 aspirin a day instead!
Let`s see...Bill Clinton married to Satan....Bill Clinton needs open heart surgery...
There's always Vicodin and Percocet once everything else gets banned. That'd give John P Walters a heart attack though..
I think I will just stick with Asprin and/or Tylenol.
You mean the FDA might be a little corrupt or just un-wittingly inept or riddled with favoritism? Could legal drugs be more dangerous than illegal drugs? How could we ever find out if all these doctors and medical examiners are constiuents of the Pharmacutical Industries we will never know the difference too much is at stake and now with all this blood in the water the trial sharks are circling for a continual decades long feast!
Two of my (3) brothers took Advil by the hands full...both died of heart attacks at age 51.
Aspirin doesn't "protect" the heart. It's a blood thinner, Doc!
I realize this it is not an option for many/most who take pain medication, but the best remedy for aches and pains is excercise. Any pill you can avoid taking is the best pill.
I am mid-40's and have many friends younger and older who pop pills for every ache and pain they get. I prefer a good walk and resistance training. I take a pill as a very last resort - most generally for an injury from excercising! :)
I think everyone has taken at least one of these drugs for something......
Hopefully they will take most of these drugs out and save the country some health bills. Many of these drugs aren't that necessary....they can be substituted for aspirin.
Well, it seems that Aleve and Vioxx and Bextra have their problems in lower dosages. There has only been one study where Celebrex caused a problem, and that was in high dosages. Celebrex has been the drug being tested against in at least two of these studies, and there were no problems.
I suspect that I will continue taking my celebrex at the recommended dosage. It's about the only one that isn't eating my tummy up yet...haven't tried all the NSAIDs, its true, but I always have tummy trouble, even without the nsaids making it worse.
Of course all this news came in with a cold front and my hands hurt like the dickens....
Drink a bottle of red wine every night. You'll never have heart problems and you'll feel great (at night). The next day you'll feel like s**t but, so what? You aren't gonna die.
