Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or NSAIDs, are among the
most widely used drugs worldwide, available in both prescription
and over-the-counter forms, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen,
and others. Most NSAIDs, with the exception of aspirin, work by
inhibiting the activity of a family of enzymes called
cyclooxygenases, which drive inflammatory processes. But because
these inflammatory processes can be beneficial in some contexts and
because the drugs often elicit off-target effects, there are some
concerns about their use.
In this Aliquot, I describe current recommendations and concerns surrounding NSAID use.
