Precautions & Warnings
All topical NSAIDs may slow or delay healing. Topical corticosteroids are also known to slow or delay healing. Concomitant use of topical NSAIDs and topical steroids may increase the potential for healing problems. It is recommended that Bromfenac ophthalmic solution be used with caution in patients with known bleeding tendencies or who are receiving other medications which may prolong bleeding time. Bromfenac ophthalmic solution should not be administered while wearing contact lenses.
Bromfenac ophthalmic solution contains Sodium Sulfite, a compound that may cause allergic-type reactions including anaphylactic symptoms and life-threatening or less severe asthmatic episodes in certain susceptible people. The overall prevalence of sulfite sensitivity in the general population is unknown and probably low. Therefore, caution should be used when treating individuals who have previously exhibited sensitivities to these drugs.
