Infection: As with other anti-inflammatory medications, nabumetone may mask the usual signs of infection.
Kidney function: Teva Nabumetone can affect kidney function. You have a higher risk of developing kidney problems if you are a senior; take diuretics (water pills; e.g., Hydrochlorothiazide, Furosemide); or already have Kidney Disease, liver disease, or heart failure.
