I'm off this NSAID and my BP is much better. I don't except a constant 120/80...that is crazy to think that.
I thought NSAIDs were anti inflammatory drugs and not related to blood pressure.

So did I and didn't have a clue that my BP was spiking and staying elevated until my D.O. got on me about this drug and BP. So as we know, every drug has side effects and many we don't think would but they do. He said I could be a walking stroke to happen. Thanks goodness I'm off Nsaids and taking what gets me thru my day with this bodywide OA.

It's truly a complex balancing act for most and I make sure my magnesium and potassium levels are in a good optimal place.
