USES: Ketoprofen is used to reduce pain, swelling, and joint stiffness from arthritis. It is also used to relieve mild to moderate pain such as menstrual cramps, headaches, muscle aches, backaches, and dental pain. In addition, ketoprofen is used to reduce fever and to relieve minor aches and pain due to the common cold or flu. This medication is known as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID).

HOW TO USE: Take this medication by mouth with a full glass of water (8 ounces or 240 milliliters), unless your doctor directs you otherwise. Do not lie down for at least 30 minutes after taking this drug. If stomach upset occurs while taking this medication, take it with food, milk, or an antacid. The dosage is based on your medical condition and response to therapy. Do not increase your dose or take it more frequently than recommended because this may increase your risk of stomach bleeding. Do not take more than 100 mg daily if you have severe kidney disease. The smallest effective dose should be used. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for more information. If you are using this medication to relieve arthritis, take it usually 3 or 4 times a day on a regular schedule, or as directed by your doctor. If you are using ketoprofen on an as needed basis (not on a regular schedule), remember that pain medications work best if they are used as the first signs of pain occur. If you wait until the pain has significantly worsened, the medicine may not work as well. If repeat doses are needed, they can be taken usually 6 or 8 hours apart, or as directed by your doctor. If you use this medication for migraine headache, and the pain is not relieved or worsens after the first dose, tell your doctor immediately. For nonprescription ketoprofen products: Follow the package instructions. Consult your doctor before taking this medication if the painful area is red or swollen. Consult your doctor immediately if fever or pain do not improve within 24 hours, worsen or last for more than 3 days, or if new symptoms appear. In general, do not take more than 2 tablets (25 milligrams) in a 4-6 hour period or 6 tablets (75 milligrams) in a 24 hour period. Do not use in children less than 16 years old unless so directed by the doctor. In certain conditions (e.g., arthritis), it may take up to 2-4 weeks, taken regularly, before the full benefits of this drug take effect. Inform your doctor if your condition persists or worsens.

DRUG INTERACTIONS: Ketoprofen may increase the blood levels of lithium (Eskalith) by reducing the excretion of lithium by the kidneys which may lead to lithium toxicity.

Ketoprofen may reduce the blood pressure lowering effects of blood pressure medications. This occurs because prostaglandins play a role in reducing blood pressure.

When NSAIDs are combined with methotrexate (Rheumatrex, Trexall) or aminoglycosides (for example, gentamicin) the blood levels of methotrexate or aminoglycoside may increase because the elimination of methotrexate and aminoglycosides is reduced. This may lead to more methotrexate or aminoglycoside side effects.

Individuals taking blood thinners or anticoagulants, for example, warfarin (Coumadin), should avoid ketoprofen because ketoprofen also thins the blood, and excessive blood thinning may lead to bleeding.

Persons who have more than three alcoholic beverages per day are at increased risk of developing stomach ulcers when taking ketoprofen or other NSAIDs.

PREGNANCY: There are no adequate studies of ketoprofen in pregnant women. Therefore, ketoprofen is not recommended during pregnancy.

NURSING MOTHERS: It is not known whether ketoprofen is excreted in breast milk.

SIDE EFFECTS: The most common side effects from ketoprofen are rash, ringing in the ears, headaches, dizziness, drowsiness, abdominal pain, nausea, diarrhea, constipation, heartburn, retention of fluid and shortness of breath.

NSAIDs reduce the ability of blood to clot and therefore increase bleeding after an injury. Ketoprofen also may cause stomach and intestinal bleeding from ulcers. Sometimes, stomach ulceration and intestinal bleeding occur without any abdominal pain. Black tarry stools (due to blood in the stool), weakness, and dizziness upon standing (orthostatic hypotension) may be the only signs of the bleeding.

People who are allergic to other NSAIDs should not use ketoprofen. NSAIDs reduce the flow of blood to the kidneys and impair function of the kidneys. The impairment is most likely to occur in patients with preexisting impairment of kidney function or congestive heart failure, and use of NSAIDs in these patients should be done cautiously. Individuals with asthma are more likely to experience allergic reactions to ketoprofen and other NSAIDs. Fluid retention, blood clots, heart attacks, hypertension, and heart
