Flurbiprofen is a member of the phenylalkanoic acid derivative family of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). It is primarily indicated as a pre-operative anti-miotic (in an ophthalmic solution) as well as orally for arthritis or dental pain. Side effects are analogous to those of ibuprofen.[1]

It was derived from propionic acid by the research arm of Boots UK during the 1960s, a period which also included the discovery of ibuprofen, indometacin, diclofenac, naproxen, ketoprofen, and sulindac.[2][3]:34

It was patented in 1964 by Boots UK and approved for medical use in 1987.[4] It was approved in the US in 1988; the first generic was approved in 1994.[5]:158

Adverse effects[edit]

In October 2020, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) required the drug label to be updated for all nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications to describe the risk of kidney problems in unborn babies that result in low amniotic fluid.[6][7] They recommend avoiding NSAIDs in pregnant women at 20 weeks or later in pregnancy.[6][7]
