Combining ketoprofen with a diuretic can increase the risk of kidney problems, especially in people who already have kidney problems, and can decrease the effectiveness of the diuretic.
Taking ketoprofen and lithium together may increase the levels of lithium in your body by reducing the kidneys' ability to remove lithium. Your healthcare provider may need to adjust your dose of these drugs and monitor the level of lithium in your blood.
"Blood Thinners" and Other Similar Drugs
Combining ketoprofen with anticoagulants ("blood thinners"), antiplatelet drugs, or other medications that increase the risk of bleeding may lead to serious bleeding problems, including dangerous internal bleeding. Do not combine ketoprofen with such medications without your healthcare provider's approval and supervision.
Ketoprofen may increase the risk of methotrexate toxicity. Do not combine these medications without your healthcare provider's supervision and approval.

SSRIs or SNRIs
Combining a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) or a serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI) with ketoprofen may increase the risk of bleeding. Check with your healthcare provider before taking ketoprofen with an SSRI or SNRI.
