  • Ketoprofen CR Overview

    Ketoprofen is used to relieve pain from various conditions such as dental pain, menstrual cramps, and muscle aches. It is also used to reduce pain, swelling, and joint stiffness from arthritis. Ketoprofen is known as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). It works by blocking your body's production of certain natural substances that cause inflammation. This effect helps to decrease swelling, pain, or fever. If you are treating a chronic condition such as arthritis, ask your doctor about non-drug treatments and/or using other medications to treat your pain.

  • Ketoprofen CR Warnings

    Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (including ketoprofen) may rarely increase the risk of a heart attack or stroke. This effect can happen at any time while taking Ketoprofen CR but is more likely if you take it for a long time. The risk may be greater in older adults or if you have heart disease or increased risk for heart disease (for example, due to smoking, family history of heart disease, or conditions such as high blood pressure or diabetes). Do not take Ketoprofen CR right before or after heart bypass surgery (CABG). Also, Ketoprofen CR may rarely cause serious (rarely fatal) bleeding from the stomach or intestines. This effect can occur without warning symptoms at any time while taking Ketoprofen CR. Older adults may be at higher risk for this effect.stomach/abdominal pain that doesn't go away, black/tarry stools, vomit that looks like coffee grounds, chest/jaw/left arm pain, shortness of breath, unusual sweating, confusion, weakness on one side of the body, trouble speaking, sudden vision changes.

If you use Ketoprofen CR for migraine headache and the pain is not relieved, or if it worsens after the first dose, tell your doctor right away. If you are taking Ketoprofen CR "as needed" (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 worsened, the medicine may not work as well. Tell your doctor if your condition lasts or gets worse.
