I have also learned I needed to dump the NSAIDs. I have a very short list of over the counter meds that are ok for me to take and NSAIDs are not on that list.

Resolved in 2014 to remain below 120!

My cardiologist told me not to take ANY nsaids except my daily baby aspirin. Tylenol is OK when needed.

Yes, these are NSAIDs and come with severe warnings, especially for people over 60.

Please heed these warnings.

Yes my Mom mentioned this to me the other day as she takes medication for high BP and I was surprised!

I am getting by on Tylenol, but even Tylenol recommendations have been adjusted: warning not to take more than 2000 mg/ day. That is just 4 of the 500 mg tabs. It can cause severe liver damage. Mouth still warm and swollen 2 days after tooth extraction, on Penicillin V K so back to dentist today.

Wow, I had no idea. I googled it and found out that some cough and cold medications do the same thing. Thank you for sharing the info.

If you are using this drug and have any risks of hypertension, beware. I took it last October while traveling for my back pain and overnight, my pressure shot up to 220/110, had to get emergency care and return home to my own doctor. I've saddled with high blood pressure ever since.
Now I am recovering from a severely abscessed tooth extracted Monday. but over the weekend was desperate for pain relief so of course I risked taking Motrin again. It relieved theain but it has taken 3 days for my bp to return to normal even on my bp med Losartan.
The manufacturer now lists hypertension as a known side effect, which they were not doing last year. Ibuprofen is also found in Advil...please take with caution
