I'm curious how they define 'high doses.' I didn't see it specified in the article.

I traced it back to the original article in the British Medical Journal and found it here
Our results indicated that high dose ibuprofen (800 mg three times daily) and high dose diclofenac (75 mg twice daily) were each associated with an increased risk of vascular events ...
That's twice the maximum warning on the label ("Do not excced 6 tablets [200 mg each] in one day") or equal to 12 maximum strength tablets a day.
