Tolfenamic Acid Information

 

Medication Safety Issues
International issues:

Clotam Rapid brand name for tolfenamic acid [United Kingdom] may be confused with Cloftal brand name for chloramphenicol [Venezuela] and Clofoam brand name for clobetasol [Lebanon].

Tolfenamic acid may be confused with tiaprofenic acid.

Geriatric Patients: High-Risk Medication:

Beers Criteria: Based on pharmacologic class concerns for Nonsteroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) in the Beers Criteria, tolfenamic acid may be a potentially inappropriate medication to be avoided in patients ≥65 years (unless alternative agents ineffective and patient can receive concomitant gastroprotective agent) due to increased risk of GI bleeding and peptic ulcer disease in older adults in high risk category (eg, >75 years or receiving concomitant oral/parenteral corticosteroids, anticoagulants, or antiplatelet agents). May increase risk of acute kidney injury and further decline of kidney function in elderly patients with stages IV or higher chronic kidney disease or CrCl <30 mL/minute (Beers Criteria [AGS 2015]). Note: Updates for the American Geriatrics Society 2019 Updated AGS Criteria for Potentially Inappropriate Medication Use in Older Adults are in process.
