Relafen is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), which is generically known as Nabumetone. It is primarily used to treat the pain from rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis. Unlike other NSAIDs, like Motrin or Advil, Relafen is only available by prescription. Although Relafen has fewer gastrointestinal side effects than do other NSAIDs. Unfortunately, Relafen has been known to cause Stevens-Johnson Syndrome (SJS) and Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis (TEN). These two dangerous skin conditions cause skin to separate from other skin layers.
For a period of time, there were no warnings about the side effects of Relafen listed on the bottles. Only recently did the makers of this drug, SmithKline Beecham, add Stevens-Johnson Syndrome and Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis to the warning labels. This implies that many of the people who have been taking this drug may have been exposed to risks without having sufficient opportunity to weigh the risks. This is especially significant because it is extended use or Relafen that is most likely to cause the serious adverse effects.
Stevens-Johnson Syndrome and Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis are both potentially fatal skin conditions in which skin layers separate from one another and cause serious rashes all over the body. Furthermore, these conditions can cause blindness and severe difficulty with breathing. For more information about these conditions, please click on the highlighted links.
