Doctors are urging people that are over the age of 40 to stop taking ibuprofen because the pain reliever can significantly increase your chances of getting heart disease!
The FDA said:
This risk increases the longer one continues to use ibuprofen”
“You do not need to have an existing heart condition to be at risk, although such a condition does increase your chances.”
“These risks make ibuprofen especially dangerous to individuals over 40 – the age at which one’s risk of heart disease begins to skyrocket”
Ibuprofen can increase the chance of a heart attack by almost 20%.
