Abstract

While these study results are not definitive, the findings are consistent with limited other data also reviewed, and suggest the need for further epidemiologic research to clarify the association between use of NSAIDs at OTC levels and risk of GI bleeding, and to determine whether NSAIDs and alcohol may interactively combine to enhance risk.
