Nabumetone Overview

Nabumetone is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID).[2] Nabumetone has been developed by Beecham. It is available under numerous brand names, such as Relafen, Relifex, and Gambaran. Nabumetone is a nonacidic NSAID that is rapidly metabolized in the liver to a major active metabolite, 6-methoxy-2-naphthyl acetic acid. As found with previous NSAIDs, nabumetone's active metabolite inhibits the cyclooxygenase enzyme and preferentially blocks COX-2 activity (which is indire...

Allergic reaction to nambumetone

I was prescribed this medication for inflammation. I had a reaction that has lasted over a month after only taking seven pills. My skin broke out in rashes, became red and inflamed, and turned dark like it was burnt. I‘ve been itching for almost a month. Has anyone else ever experienced this while taking this medication. ## I have been on Relefen, or Nambutone as an antibiotic inflammatory now for about a year or so. I am on 750ml mg. I have never had any of the symptoms that you have experienced. it sounds to me as if you are definitely allergic to the medication so I would definitely stop taking it and advise your doctor that gave you the medication about your rash and itching and maybe they can switch your medication to something that you will not be allergic to. Good luck to y...

p650 on one side of oblong orange pill and 750 on other side? ## hi ## This refers to Nabumetone, 750mg, which is an anti-inflammatory drug which is usually prescribed to alterius cases ## ooops! stupid auto-correct!

white oblong tablet ## NABUMETONE (Relafen®) is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). It helps relieve pain and inflammation associated with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Generic nabumetone tablets are available. ## The tablet with this marking was manufactured by Sandoz Pharmaceuticals, and given the limited information I can find on it, I am not sure it is still available. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and increased risk of bleeding. The name brand has been discontinued, I do have confirmation of that. Does anyone else know more?

Nabumetone 500mg Tablet

I have only taken 4 pills of this drug, and since I took it this morning I have been nausea all day long. When I eat (which doesn't sound good) it only relieves the pain temporarily. I've had a dull headache for the past week, should I be concerned? ## Nabumetone is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, so what you've described can be normal side effects from it, as well as dizziness and stomach irritation. However, if they are very problematic, then you should consult your doctor, because this may not be the right medication for you, or you may do better with a different dosage. Are there any other questions? ## I took a 500 mg Nabumetone tablet this morning! It is my final dosage of a ten day regimen. When is it safe to take ibuprofen? ## Why is nabumetone being discontinued? ...

Nabumetone and alcohol

I have only taken 500mg for 2 days. My last dose was at 8am on 9/10/16. I am no longer going to take them since it was giving me a migraine. We have a family party today at noon and would like to have a beer or 2 but everything says no drinking, would I be fine? ## Everything piece of clinical literature I've read on Nabumetone and alcohol also implicate serious drug interaction warnings. So take it for what you will, but I would personally advise against any combination of those two substances, even the smallest amount. If on the other hand the medication is out of your body then that's a different story, but I think it would probably be best to wait at least a few days to drink since Nabumetone has a long half life. I hope this helps!

oblong white pill b 146

Found a pill that I'm trying to find out what it is. It's white oblong and has B 146 on one side. Nothing on the other side. ## Hello, Sally! How are you?

If so, this tablet is manufactured by Sandoz Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 750mgs of Nabumetone, which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and stomach irritation.

other names for nabumetone

I know Nabumetone has been developed by Beecham and it's available under numerous brand names, such as Relafen, Relifex, and Gambaran but none of these are available through my patient assistance program. Please list all available name brands that you know of so that I can see if I can get a refill of my prescription. ## Hi Sandra, According to nih.gov, brand name Relafen is no longer on the market. However they go on to note that "generic alternatives may be available" - So I'm thinking it might just be a good idea to talk with your doctor about a generic option if that's the only thing available. The information on Relafen's availability was said to be last reviewed/officially verified by nih.gov back on 09/01/2010 (with no recent updates on their website of an...
