Relafen and Kidney failure

I was on Vioxx for 4 years, it worked for my knees. Then they pulled it off the market. I was prescribed 1000 mg of Relafen. After a week or so I got severe stomach pain and ultimately went into kidney failure. Is this a common side effect? ## It is listed as being a very rare possible side effect of Relafen, it has happened in less than 0.01% of people that have taken it, according to FDA reports. REF: MedLine Plus Nabumetone Other side effects may include nausea, headache, stomach irritation, and liver damage. Is that the only medication you were taking? Have they definitively attributed it to the medication?

500 relafen

Large oblong white pill with the number 500 on one side the name relafen on the other. ## This should be a 500 mg pill of Relafen, as indicated by the name on the pill. Good question though, because usually pills do not have the full name inscribed on them, it just happened to be that way with this one. Do you have any other questions or information to add? Please post back if you do...
