Prescription Painkillers Linked to Miscarriage

From Reuters Health, February 2, 2001 comes a report of a study frm Denmark that shows a link between painkillers called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) during pregnancy and a rise in a woman’s risk of miscarriage. In this study, nearly 53,000 women who were pregnant between 1991 and 1998, were studied. Investigators found that the results suggested a strong link between miscarriage risk and the use of prescription NSAIDs. The research team found no link between NSAID use and premature birth, birth defects or low birth weight, but the drugs were clearly connected to miscarriage risk. The results of the study were published in the British Medical Journal in January 2001.
