Allergic reactions: If you have had a reaction to acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) or other NSAIDs (e.g., Ibuprofen, Ketoprofen, Ketorolac) that included a runny nose, itchy skin rash, nasal polyps, or shortness of breath and wheezing, you should not take this medication.

If you have high blood potassium levels, you should not take Ansaid (Flurbiprofen).
