It can also cause drowsiness, dizziness, discomfort and overstimulation.

Overdose

The symptoms of chlorzoxazone overdose can be stupor, coma, shock, respiratory depression. The symptoms of ketoprofen overdose can be drowsiness, heartburn, nausea and vomiting.

Interaction

Oral anticoagulants require close monitoring of coagulation parameters. The use of alendronate has been associated with gastrointestinal irritation, so this effect can be increased with concomitant administration. NSAIDs may decrease the antihypertensive and natriuretic effects. Simultaneous use of ketoprofen and aspirin may produce reduced serum levels of ketoprofen, but the clinical importance of this observation is undetermined. The coexisting use of beta-adrenergic blocker NSAIDs may cause an increase in blood pressure. This effect has been reported for flurbiprofen (400 mg daily), ibuprofen (more than 400 mg daily), indomethacin (more than 50 mg daily), naproxen (1,000 mg daily) and piroxicam.
