    Health officials have advised patients with heart problems to avoid an over-the-counter painkiller used by millions after research found that it can significantly increase the risk of heart attack or stroke.
    The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) said that patients with an underlying heart condition, such as heart failure, heart disease or circulatory problems, or patients who have previously suffered heart attacks or strokes, should no longer use diclofenac.​
