Safest nsaid!?: There isn't one they all have to be used carefully and taken with food they can all cause ulcers and other problems don't lull yourself into a false sense of security even Celebrex (celecoxib) has a list of GI warnings so be safe.

None safe: Unfortunately, none of the NSAID are safe for long term use. They can cause life-threatening ulcers and gastrointestinal bleeding, may increase the risk for heart attacks or strokes, and they don’t interact well with drugs used to treat heart failure. They can make high blood pressure worse, even uncontrollable, and impair kidney function.
