Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs for heavy menstrual bleeding

NSAIDs increase the risk of potentially fatal, stomach and intestinal adverse reactions (for example, bleeding, ulcers, and perforation of the stomach or intestines ). These events can occur at any time during treatment and without warning symptoms. Elderly patients are at greater risk for these adverse events. NSAIDs (except low dose aspirin) may increase the risk of potentially fatal heart attacks, stroke , and related conditions. This risk may increase with duration of use and in patients who have underlying risk factors for heart and blood vessel disease. Therefore, NSAIDs should not be used for the treatment of pain resulting from coronary artery bypass graft ( CABG ) surgery.

Researchers from Oklahoma State University gave participants either 40 g of soy protein (about ¼ cup of shelled edamame) or milk-based protein for three months. At the study's end, pain was reduced for those who ate soy protein but not for those in the milk protein group. "I'm talking about tofu, tempeh, other fermented forms of whole soy—not soy protein isolates, which you commonly see in processed snacks," says James N. Dillard, MD, author of The Chronic Pain Solution . Cooking with tofu is simple as long as you know the basics. Silken tofu is soft and often used in creamy dressings, soups, and desserts; firm tofu is typically cooked like meat—say, marinated and grilled.
