Elena Malysheva and German Gandelman said that painkillers provoke the development of an ulcer
Therapist Elena Malysheva and cardiologist German Gandelman warned about the dangers of a popular group of drugs – non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Doctors said that painkillers provoke the development of an ulcer and raise the pressure. Release available on the channel’s website.
“The main contraindication and the main thing to watch out for when taking painkillers is the stomach,” said Malysheva.
NSAIDs can irritate the stomach, lead to ulcers, and worsen existing peptic ulcers, Gandelman said. “The use of painkillers leads to a process when the secretion of special protective substances in the stomach is disrupted, thereby increasing the frequency of ulcer formation,” he explained.
If painkillers are necessary, experts recommend taking them along with prosolesand only on a full stomach.
In addition, as the doctors said, painkillers affect the cardiovascular system. “These drugs can raise blood pressure,” Gandelman warned. The cardiologist also emphasized that anti-hypertension pills should not be taken along with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. “This is due to the fact that painkillers block substances that dilate blood vessels,” Malysheva added.
Earlier, Malysheva and Gandelman warned about the dangers of taking certain antibiotics and painkillers in the summer. According to experts, these popular drugs may increase the risk of skin cancer.
