Moreover, can heart patients take naproxen?
NSAID pain relievers, such as naproxen and ibuprofen. If you have atrial fibrillation (irregular heartbeat) and are on blood thinners to lower your risk of blood clots and stroke, beware of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
Subsequently, question is, which Nsaid is safe for cardiac patients? Starting with a 100- to 200-mg dose of celecoxib may be the safest choice in patients with CV disease. If celecoxib does not produce adequate pain relief, naproxen or ibuprofen should be considered.
Secondly, what pain medication is safe for heart patients?
Acetaminophen Is the Best Pain Reliever for Heart Patients That's because acetaminophen is unlike other common, over-the-counter pain medications, like ibuprofen and naproxen, which can aggravate high blood pressure, and in turn raise a person's risk of having a heart attack.
Can heart patients take NSAIDs?
Yes. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) — medications commonly used to treat pain and inflammation — can increase the risk of a heart attack or stroke. Taking NSAIDs once in a while or for a short time, such as to help with pain due to an injury, generally has only a small risk.
