Certain Painkillers Tied to Raised Risk of Death After Stroke

In a large study from Denmark — based on more than 100,000 people hospitalized for a first stroke between 2004 and 2012 — investigators wanted to see if the painkillers affected recovery from a stroke. The researchers found that use of Celebrex prior to hospitalization for ischemic stroke was associated with a 19% increase in risk of death within a month, compared with non-use of the drug.
