Health Tip: Can I Take an NSAID?

Not if you have certain allergies
(HealthDay News) -- Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are common pain-relieving medications that often are available over-the-counter.

People with an allergy to pain relievers, including aspirin. People who drink three or more alcoholic beverages per day. People who have stomach or intestinal bleeding, or peptic ulcers. People who have kidney disease, heart disease or liver disease. People with a bleeding disorder or who take medication to thin the blood.
