I have tried many different kinds of pain relievers, to no avail, and to be quite honest I didn't think this medication would work either. I have been taking Ketoprofen 200 MG for two months now and h...

I have back pain as I hurt it while doing exercise. Dr. recommended this Oruvail 200 mg. It really helped my pain and inflammation has gone in 3 days. And I am almost back to normal.

I have been given ketoprofen for rheumatoid arthritis and I must say the pain has been bearable.

This is the absolute best thing that I have used for migraines, muscle aches, and menstrual pain. I wish that OrudisKT was still available OTC.

I use this medication for the herniated disc in my neck. Severe pain went down my right arm. Couldn't deal with it, but ketoprofen made 95 to 100% of pain go away. Great stuff.


Additional Drug Information


* Warning: The facts and figures contained in these reports are accurate to the best of our capability; however, our metrics are only meant to augment your medical knowledge, and should never be used as the sole basis for selecting a new medication. As with any medical decision, be sure to work with your doctor to ensure the best choices are made for your condition.

* About FAERS: The FDA Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS) is used by FDA for activities such as looking for new safety concerns that might be related to a marketed product, evaluating a manufacturer's compliance to reporting regulations and responding to outside requests for information. Reporting of adverse events is a voluntary process, and not every report is sent to FDA and entered into FAERS. The FAERS database may contain duplicate reports, the report quality is variable, and many factors may influence reporting (e.g., media attention, length of time a drug is marketed, market share). For these reasons, FAERS case reports cannot be used to calculate incidence or estimates of risk for a particular product or compare risks between products.
