Stronger warning about potential hepatotoxicity in patients taking Duract (bromfenac)

    The FDA is requiring a stronger warning about potential hepatotoxicity in patients taking Duract (bromfenac).
    Duract is the new NSAID that just came out last fall. It's approved only for short-term use...similar to Toradol (ketorolac).

    Now there are several reports of severe hepatitis and liver failure in patients taking Duract for longer than a month.

    Don't prescribe Duract for more than 10 days. If patients take it longer, monitor LFTs...particularly ALT and bilirubin.
