Does nepafenac ophthalmic interact with other medications?

Since napafenac is administered directly into the eye, it is unlikely to interact with other medications taken by mouth. However, you should make a list of all medications you currently take and give it to your doctor before using the medication. Be sure to include any vitamins or nutritional or herbal supplements. Also, include any over-the-counter medications. Tell your doctor if you have had a previous allergic reaction to any drugs, foods or other substances. Specifically, make sure your doctor knows if you use any other eye drops, including steroid eye drops or blood thinners such as warfarin.
