Use of Pain Killers Linked to High Blood Pressure

Terms: Uncategorized

Women who take over-the-counter pain-relief medications like
Motrin or Aleve for 22 days or more per month are 86% more likely
to develop high blood pressure. Women who frequently take Tylenol
are twice as likely to get hypertension. The link was discovered
in a study of 80,000 women that was just published in the
Archives of Internal Medicine.
