Diclofenac Linked to Increased Cardiovascular Health Risks

  • A traditional non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) called diclofenac poses a cardiovascular health risk compared with no use, paracetamol use, and use of other traditional NSAIDs, according to a study.

  • Diclofenac is a NSAID for treating pain and inflammation and is widely used across the world.

  • But its cardiovascular risks compared with those of other traditional NSAIDs have never been examined in large randomized controlled trials.
