Who should not take meclofenamate?

Do not take meclofenamate if you have ever had an ulcer or bleeding in the stomach or intestines. Because meclofenamate increases your risk of heart attack and stroke, you may need to avoid this drug if you have heart disease or have had a heart attack or a stroke. You may also need to avoid meclofenamate if you smoke, have high cholesterol, high blood pressure, or diabetes. You should avoid meclofenamate if you take blood-thinning drugs such as warfarin (Coumadin), other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as aspirin or ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin), or oral steroids.
