Bromfenac Pregnancy and Breastfeeding Warnings

Bromfenac is also known as: DurAct

Bromfenac Pregnancy Warnings

Bromfenac has been assigned to pregnancy category C by the FDA. Animal studies have revealed evidence of reduced embryo/fetal survival, dystocia, and delayed parturition. There are no controlled data in human pregnancy. Bromfenac is only recommended for use during pregnancy when the benefit outweighs risk. Because nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are known to delay parturition or cause premature closure of the ductus arteriosus, bromfenac should be avoided during late pregnancy.
