Over the counter anti-inflammatory drugs could be damaging the health of runners
Anti-inflammatory drugs, such as over-the-counter ibuprofen, are commonly used by runners to ease post-exercise aches, pains or injuries, but carry a risk of harm according to a new study into the use of the pain killers by recreational runners in the UK. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs) block the production of inflammatory chemicals called prostaglandins, which reduces pain and inflammation, however they also block protective prostaglandins in the stomach and prostaglandins that help maintain kidney function.
