This Popular Kind Of Heartburn Medicine Can Increase Stroke Risk
This study further questions the cardiovascular safety of these drugs,” Sehested said. Although the study found an association between PPIs and stroke risk, it does not prove cause and effect. More studies are needed, and doctors should consider if and for how long patients should take these drugs, the researchers said. [7 Bizarre Drug Side Effects] PPIs are not the only medicines available to treat heartburn.

Taking Certain Heartburn Meds Linked To Higher Risk Of Heart Attack
By Kathryn Doyle (Reuters Health) - People who take certain popular heartburn medications, like omeprazole (Prilosec), are at increased risk of heart attack, according to a data mining study by U.S. researchers. The drugs, called proton-pump inhibitors (PPIs), lower acidity in the stomach and prevent the burning sensation in the esophagus that indicates acid reflux.

Shah of Stanford University in California, but most research has focused on the interaction be...

Daily low-dose aspirin can prevent heart attack and stroke but is often misused
Aspirin is often hailed as a wonder drug, thanks to its ability to help stave off heart attacks and clot-caused strokes. But fewer than half of people who could benefit from a daily low-dose aspirin take it, while many others take it when they shouldn't, reports the January 2014 Harvard Heart Letter. If you don't have heart disease, but do have high blood pressure, diabetes, or other risk factors for heart disease, don't automatically assume that taking aspirin every day is a good idea. "A lot of people take aspirin who really shouldn't," says Dr. Christopher Cannon, a cardiologist at Brigham and Women's Hospital...

Famotidine Blocks Histamine H2 Receptor, Offering New Treatment For Schizophrenia
A research group led by professor Jesper Ekelund showed that by giving a very large dose of famotidine (200 mg daily), sufficient amounts of the drug are able to penetrate the so-called blood-brain barrier to affect the histamine system in the brain. Famotidine has been used for the treatment of heartburn since the 1980s, but at regular dosing, famotidine almost does not enter the brain at all, since the brain is protected by the blood-brain barrier. By increasing the dosage five-fold the drug is able to enter the brain and affect the histamine system... (Source: Health News from Medical News Today)
