Health Tip: Can I Take an NSAID?

(HealthDay News) -- Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are common pain-relieving medications that often are available over-the-counter.

However, the American Academy of Family Physicians says some people shouldn't take these drugs, among them:

  • People with an allergy to pain relievers, including aspirin.

  • People who drink three or more alcoholic beverages per day.

  • People who have stomach or intestinal bleeding, or peptic ulcers.

  • People who have kidney disease, heart disease or liver disease.

  • People with a bleeding disorder or who take medication to thin the blood.
