Relafen Side Effects May Lead To Stevens Johnson Syndrome Lawsuits

Relafen (Generic: Nabumetone) is an anti-inflammatory medicine generally prescribed for rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis to reduce pain, inflammation, and stiffness. People who take Relafen should be aware that extended use can lead to a severe adverse reaction called Stevens Johnson Syndrome.

Stevens Johnson Syndrome (SJS) is a form of skin disease that can cause rashes, skin peeling, and sores on the mucous membranes. SJS is an immune-complex–mediated hypersensitivity disorder that may be caused by many drugs, viral infections, and malignancies. Many prescription drugs causing the onset of Stevens Johnson Syndrome did not have warnings placed on their labels until recently. Patients unknowingly took these drugs and many developed the potentially fatal Stevens Johnson Syndrome.

With Stevens Johnson Syndrome, a person has blistering of mucous membranes, typically in the mouth, eyes, and vagina, and patchy areas of rash. In the related condition Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis, there is a similar blistering of mucous membranes. However, in addition to blistering, the entire epidermis peels off in sheets from large areas of the body. Both disorders can be life threatening.  Other possible allergic reactions include urticaria, dyspnea, anaphylaxis, and the severe symptoms associated with Stevens-Johnson Syndrome.
