Heart attack, had diabetes, BP, retina issues. Given combiflam. What is wrong?

Recently, my father had a heart attack . He had diabetes and B.P. He also had retina problems in the eye for which, he underwent many operations. During medication , he was asked to take one or two tablets of Combiflam daily to relieve the pain. I have heard that, excess dosage is harmful for the health. That was 9 months ago. I want to know if that high dosage was responsible for his death. Also, I will be much obliged if you reveal me the period of storage of the drug Combiflam In the body before utilization. Thank you

Combiflam tablets comes under category of NSAIDS I.e non -steroidal anti inflammatory drugs and they are used from fever to various painful conditions . Your fathers death is not related or not due to the side effect or the overdose by this tablets , when u take the excessive dose of these tablets they will cause gastritis and heart burn ..that's it , death is not reported in any body taking them , probable cause of death for your father due to heart disease as your father is diabetic and hypertensive.

Take care bye...
