NSAIDs (Includes bromfenac) ↔ heart failure
Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility. Applies to: Congestive Heart Failure
Fluid retention and edema have been observed in patients treated with NSAIDs, including some topical formulations. These drugs should be used with caution in patients with fluid retention or heart failure.
NSAIDs (Includes bromfenac) ↔ hyperkalemia
Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility. Applies to: Hyperkalemia, Renal Dysfunction
Increase in serum potassium concentration, including hyperkalemia, have been reported with use of NSAIDs, even in some patients without renal impairment. In patients with normal renal function, these effects have been attributed to a hyporeninemic- hypoaldosteronism state.
NSAIDs (Includes bromfenac) ↔ hypertension
Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility. Applies to: Hypertension
NSAIDs including topicals can lead to the onset of new hypertension or worsening of preexisting hypertension, either of which can contribute to the increased incidence of cardiovascular events. Blood pressure should be monitored closely during NSAID therapy and throughout the course of therapy.
