How often are NSAIDs used?

A 2010 survey by the Centers for Disease Control estimated that 30 million adults in the United States (13% of the adult population) were regular users of NSAIDs (≥3 doses per week for at least 3 months). The number of regular NSAID users increased by over 40% compared with that in 2005. Prescription NSAID use has declined since 2000 despite higher prevalence of regular users, reflective of increased over-the-counter use. Patients aged >60 years, those with high body mass index, and those with established CV disease are more likely to be regular users, emphasizing that high-risk groups are still common users of these medications.
