Does flurbiprofen interact with any other drugs?

Flurbiprofen interacts with several other drugs to reduce their effectiveness – for example, ACE inhibitors, beta blockers, some diuretics and furosemide. This medication should not be taken with aspirin or other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and may increase risk of internal bleeding when used with warfarin (Coumadin) and other blood thinners. Flurbiprofen can increase the toxicity of the psoriasis drug methotrexate, and can increase the risk of hypoglycemia when taken with medications that lower blood sugar. Tell your doctor all the prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) medications you take.
