Commonly Used Drugs May Increase Hypertension

Posted: Thursday, May 03, 2007

A Boston-based study has found that the frequency of non-narcotic analgesic use appears to be independently associated with a moderate increase in the risk of incident hypertension.
 
The study group examined the effect of 16,031 male health professionals for frequent use of acetaminophen, NSAIDs, and aspirin to determine the risk for hypertension.
 
When used consistently for six or seven days a week, the researchers observed the following:
  • Men who used acetaminophen had a 34% higher risk for hypertension.
  • Men who used NSAIDs had a 38% higher risk for hypertension.
  • Men who used aspirin had a 26% higher risk for hypertension.
