Ibuprofen Linked to Men's Fertility Problems

 

TUESDAY Jan. 9, 2018 -- Taking the common painkiller ibuprofen has been linked in a small study with a condition affecting male fertility problems.

 

Male fertility is dropping around the world and the researchers wanted to see if ibuprofen might be contributing to this.

 

Ibuprofen is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug sold without a prescription for short-term treatment of pain, inflammation from injuries, and fever. Health professionals may recommend longer-term use.

 

It is known to increase the risk of heart attacks and stroke if taken regularly in high doses for a long time.

 

It has already been linked with fertility problems in women taking the drug.

 

Common brands of ibuprofen include Advil and Motrin.

 

Aspirin is a weak painkiller and causes ulcer.

I'm allergic to paracetamol. It's also weak.

Opioids are not available OTC.

What else is there? MJ? Naproxen? The latter is even worse for your stomach than Aspirin.

 

I just flushed down the toilet all of mine Nurofen pills.

Tylenol (acetaminophen) is really hard on your liver.
