Naproxen Side Effects May Lead To Heart Attack Lawsuits
Naproxen | Lawsuits, Lawyers | Side Effects: Heart Attacks, Cardiovascular Problems
A recent Government study showed that the painkiller Naproxen, sold as Aleve, can cause an increased risk of heart attacks and other cardiovascular problems. The FDA said patients taking naproxen, which is also sold generically should not exceed the recommended dose and should not take it for more than 10 days unless directed by their doctor.
The researchers noticed a 50 percent increased risk of cardiovascular events in naproxen patients. In all, 70 patients in the trial experienced heart attacks or strokes, out of a total of 2,500 people. There were about 23 deaths.
Naproxen has been on the market as a prescription drug since 1976 and as a lower-dose, over-the-counter drug (Aleve) since 1994.
