Daypro may interact with antidepressants, cyclosporine, lithium, blood thinners, steroids, aspirin or other NSAIDs. Tell your doctor all medications you use. Daypro should be used only when prescribed during the first 6 months of pregnancy. It is not recommended for use during the last 3 months of pregnancy due to possible harm to a fetus and interference with normal labor/delivery. It is unknown if this drug passes into breast milk.
