Does postan and norgesic cause increase in BP and pulse rate ?

I had a low back pain and I was given a ponstan 500mg and norgesic 500 both of them 3x aday. I was a diabetic and i have a 3 stent in my vains since 2009. Why after taking the postan and norgesic, my blood pressure rose up to a ave. of 150/95 and my pulse was 100? was this a effect of the latter meds. But my back pain has been healed.

what u have understood is true, to some extent... these pain killers belong to NSAID group of drugs, they reduce pain & indirectly elevate BP, kidney problems, gastric irritation etc.
Hence, take it with care & only when u have sever pain & proper Dr. guidance.
