Side Effects of Ketoprofen

As with any medicine, side effects are possible with ketoprofen. However, not everyone who takes the medicine will experience side effects. Most people tolerate it well. If people do develop ketoprofen side effects, they are generally minor and either require no treatment or are easily treated by you or your healthcare provider.
Common side effects with ketoprofen include:
  • Nausea
  • Abdominal pain (stomach pain)
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Gas
  • Decreased appetite
  • Vomiting
  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
  • Unexplained rash
  • Vision problems
  • Ulcer in the stomach or intestines (peptic ulcer).
Less common but serious side effects include:
  • Cardiovascular problems, including a heart attack or stroke
  • Stomach or intestine problems, including bleeding, ulcers, or a hole (known as a perforation)
  • Liver damage
  • Kidney problems, including kidney failure
  • Fluid retention
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Allergic reaction
  • Unexplained rash.
These possible serious side effects are seen with all NSAIDs and can lead to life-threatening complications or even loss of life.
