IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

Important Safety Information

  • Non-Steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) may cause an increased risk of serious cardiovascular thrombotic events, myocardial infraction, and stroke, which can be fatal.  This risk may increase with duration of use.  Patients with cardiovascular disease or risk factors for cardiovascular disease may be at greater risk (see WARNINGS section of full Prescribing Information).
  • Nalfon is contraindicated for the treatment of peri-operative pain in the setting of coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery (See WARNINGS section of full Prescribing Information).
Gastrointestinal Risk
  • NSAIDs cause an increase risk of serious gastrointestinal adverse events including bleeding, ulceration, and perforation of stomach or intestines, which can be fatal.  These events can occur at any time during use and without warning symptoms.  Elderly patients are at greater risk for serious gastrointestinal events (See WARNINGS section of full Prescribing Information).  

Nalfon is contraindicated in patients who have shown hypersensitivity to fenoprofen calcium.  Nalfon should not be given to patients who have experienced asthma, urticaria, or allergic-type reactions after taking aspirin or other NSAIDs.  Severe, rarely fatal, anaphyiactic like reactions to NSAIDs have been reported in such patients.  Nalfon is contraindicated in patients with a history of significantly impaired renal function.
