  • Tell your doctor your medical history, especially of: liver problems, asthma, swelling problems (fluid retention), stomach problems (e.g., bleeding, ulcers), blood disorders (e.g., anemia), heart disease, high blood pressure, tobacco or alcohol use, dehydration, poorly controlled diabetes, asthma, nasal polyps, any allergies.
  • Bextra may cause stomach bleeding.
  • Daily use of alcohol and Bextra may increase your risk for stomach bleeding.
  • Bextra should be used only when clearly needed during pregnancy but should not be used during the third trimester.
  • Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor.
  • It is not known whether Bextra passes into breast milk.
  • Because of the potential risk to the infant, breast-feeding while using Bextra is not recommended.

Missed Dose
  • If you miss a dose, use it as soon as you remember.
  • If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose and resume your usual dosing schedule.
  • Do not double the dose to catch up.

Drug Interactions
  • Tell your doctor of all prescription and nonprescription medication you may use, especially: aspirin or aspirin-like drugs (e.g., NSAIDs such as ibuprofen, naproxen), azole antifungals (e.g., fluconazole, itraconazole, ketoconazole), blood thinners (e.g., warfarin), ACE inhibitors (e.g., captopril, lisinopril), water pills (diuretics such as furosemide, hydrochlorothiazide), dextromethorphan, lithium.
  • Check all prescription and nonprescription medicine labels carefully since many contain pain relievers/fever reducers (NSAIDs such as ibuprofen, naproxen, or aspirin) which are similar to Bextra.
