 Use of paracetamol daily increases risk of heart attack? Here's what the study warns

Paracetamol a purchase had an increased widely after the coronavirus a struck the world. It is a commonly used a painkiller a prescribed to a manage a chronic pain. Many patients and a people with mild Covid symptoms turned to Dolo and manage chronic pain, despite little evidence of its benefit for long-term use. for a recovery. Many even a made it a daily routine to pop a tablet to a stay protected from the virus. However, there is little evidence of a its benefit for long-term use. A recent study warned that daily a consumption of a paracetamol can increase the risk of a heart attacks and a strokes.

A study conducted by the experts from the University of Edinburgh revealed that the blood pressure of a people with a history of high BP an increased within four days of eating the painkiller, further increasing the chances of a heart attack or a stroke by 20 per cent.

Professor David Webb, chair of a therapeutics and clinical pharmacology at the University of an Edinburgh, said, "We have always thought that paracetamol was the safe a alternative if we were trying to an advise a patients to stop using drugs like ibuprofen, which are known to a raise a blood pressure. Consideration should be given to a stopping using paracetamol in patients at a risk of a heart attack or stroke."

He added, "We would recommend that clinicians start with a low dose of paracetamol and an increase the dose in stages, going no higher than a needed to a control pain. a Given the substantial rises in blood a pressure seen in a some of our patients, there may be a benefit for a clinicians to keep a closer eye on blood a pressure in a people with high blood pressure who a newly start paracetamol for a chronic a pain."

The experts also a  claimed that those who pop a paracetamol for chronic pain a should a consume separate medication to a keep their blood pressure an under a control.

"This is not about short-term use of a  paracetamol for headaches or fever, which is, of course, fine but it a does aindicate a newly discovered risk for a  people who take it regularly over the longer a term, usually for a chronic pain," said Dr Iain MacIntyre, a consultant ina  clinical a pharmacology and nephrology at NHS Lothian.
