Another comment on the ongoing COX-2 story

I should give the usual disclaimer here that none of the information here or at the end of my links should constitute medical advice. It should, however, raise questions that you discuss with your physician.

Remember the context of the studies in which these adverse findings are discovered. For example, the naproxen trial was in Alzheimer’s patients, who probably already had a lot of the risk factors present for heart trouble, and who were taking the medication for prolonged periods of time. The effect of taking naproxen intermittently is less understood.

As with anything, get information and ask questions.
