The article your about to read has special Meaning to me. I have had chronic knee pain for almost a year, I was taking ibuprofen and Advil, and Aleve up to 3 tabs to get minimal relief. My doc finally said Tom stop taking all those they are hard on your organs and just have to keep upping the dose. I broke cold turkey, yes went through months of hardly walk days. But must say still some discomfort but the pain level is tolerable.
This includes: Advil, Motrin, Aleve, generic ibuprofen, Acetaminophen and Naproxen.
Back in 2005, the FDA warned that taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like ibuprofen and Naproxen increased the risk of having a heart attack or stroke.
In July 2015 the FDA took the unusual step of further strengthening this warning.
The FDA has noted the following ibuprofen warnings and Naproxen warnings along with similar risks of other NSAIDs:
Heart attack and stroke risk increase even with short-term use, and the risk may begin within a few weeks of starting to take an NSAID.The risk increases with higher doses of NSAIDs taken for longer periods of time.The risk is greatest for people who already have heart disease, though even people without heart disease may be at risk.
Because ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil) and Naproxen (Aleve) are available over-the-counter and so widely used, it’s important to be aware of the ibuprofen warnings and naproxen warnings and to take steps to limit the risk by finding a safer more natural remedy.
Luckily, advancements in modern science have unveiled an all-natural alternative that will help “turn off” pain naturally, without drugs and dangerous side effects.
