Hello Mongo... I took notice of this also since I recently started taking Duexis mainly for inflammation.

This script was suggested by a doctor in a different state and when I returned home, I made an appointment with my doctor. She said that the people who need to be concerned are those who have high blood pressure. Since mine is low/normal, she said Duexis is fine to take.

Don't assume aspirin, acetaminophen, etc. don't have the same problem to some degree.

It's a bit the proton pump inhibitors to prevent acid reflux. Messing with your body's chemical mechanisms with drugs has a downside. Just realize that most things have pluses and minuses, and make an informed decision.

Insulin, for instance, has a lot of bad side effects. It's just that for some people, the benefits far outweigh the risks.

There's no such thing as a safe drug. Or a safe and effective natural remedy. Or a safe food, either.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.

Absolutely, which is why I immediately made an appointment with my physician to discuss the pluses and minuses. In my case, the pluses did outweigh the minuses.
