pain killers & heart decease risks

Federal health experts are taking a second look this week at the heart safety of pain medications used by millions of Americans to treat arthritis and other everyday aches and pains.

The Food and Drug Administration holds a two-day meeting beginning Monday to examine the latest research on anti-inflammatory medicines called NSAIDS, which serve as the backbone of U.S. pain treatment.

The key question is:
- whether naproxen — the key ingredient in Bayer's Aleve and many other generic pain pills
— carries a lower risk of heart attack and stroke than rival medications,
- like ibuprofen, sold as Advil by Pfizer and Motrin by Johnson & Johnson, among others.
_______________________________________________________________
- naproxen = aleve = anaprox = apronax = naprelan = naprosyn >
- ibuprophen = advil = motrin = brufen = caldolor = emuProfen = nurofen = anadin >
- paracetamol = acetaminophen = APAP = tylenol = anacin [aspirin free] = apra = feverall = genapap
