A dosage of 400 mg of Bren is not detectable in breast milk, but higher doses can get into breast milk. This means that a baby faces exposure to Bren through breast milk if a woman takes too much.
Healthcare professionals do not know the effects of small amounts of Bren in breast milk on infants. A person should consult a physician before taking Bren while breastfeeding.
The majority of Bren overdoses are not life-threatening, and fewer than 1% of Bren overdoses are fatal. That said, some people have had severe complications.
There is no specific cutoff dosage for when an adult will experience symptoms of an overdose.
If a child ingests less than 100 mg/kg of Bren, they may not experience any symptoms of an overdose. At a dosage of 400 mg/kg, however, a child may experience serious and life-threatening side effects.
Symptoms of Bren overdose can occur within 4 hours of taking too much of the drug.
What are the side effects of Bren?
The most common side effects from Bren are:
NSAIDs reduce the ability of blood to clot and therefore increase bleeding after an injury.
Bren may cause ulceration of the stomach or intestine, and the ulcers may bleed. Sometimes, ulceration can occur without abdominal pain; and due to bleeding, the only signs or symptoms of an ulcer may be black, tarry stools, weakness, and dizziness upon standing (orthostatic hypotension).
Sometimes, ulceration can occur without abdominal pain, due to the bleeding, and the only signs or symptoms of an ulcer are:
NSAIDs reduce the flow of blood to the kidneys and impair function of the kidneys. The impairment is most likely to occur in patients who already have impaired function of the kidney or congestive heart failure, and use of NSAIDs in these patients should be cautious.
People who are allergic to other NSAIDs, including aspirin, should not use Bren.
Individuals with asthma are more likely to experience allergic reactions to Bren and other NSAIDs.
Other serious side effects associated with NSAIDs are:
NSAIDs (except low- dose aspirin) may increase the risk of potentially fatal heart attacks, stroke, and related conditions in people with or without heart disease or risk factors for heart disease. The increased risk of heart attack or stroke may occur as early as the first week of use and the risk may increase with longer use and is higher in patients who have underlying risk factors for heart and blood vessel disease. Therefore, NSAIDs should not be used for the treatment of pain resulting from coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery.
