I am using calana, a calcium blocker medicine. Now I'm suffering from high blood pressure with a moderate reading of 150/70. Can I use diclofenac potassium? ## You should not take this medication, unless your doctor instructs you to do so, because it can cause elevated blood pressure and fluid retention as side effects, according to the NIH. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding, and stomach irritation. Has your doctor prescribed this for you?

What is the best medication for fibromylgia and how often should it be taken? ## There is no medication that is considered the best. Their effects can vary widely from person to person. Some people with this condition often do will with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories, such as Aceclofenac: Some have had great results with Gabapentin: Some require treatment with narcotic pain management. What has your doctor suggested you use? ## the only cure for fibromyalgia is a psychiatrist. ## This is very insulting and obviously a very uninformed individual. Fibromyalgia is very real and while I have been unsuccessful in finding anything that helps the pain or fatigue I don't see how a psychiatrist is a cure. Unless u have had to deal with this horrible condition please do not chime in with yo...

delay periods aceclofenac

Hi, I just wanted to know that anti inflammatory drugs can delay periods. I was having a muscle spam happened on 3rd day of my period. Doctor suggested some anti inflammatory drugs along with analgesics. I took it from 3rd day of my period to 12th. We are actively trying for a baby. Now I'm two days late. My cycle length is 28days and don't usual gets late. Is it because of the medication I took. Any insight will be helpful. Many thanks ## No, they don't usually cause that, but 2 days late is not really significant. The NIH lists the typical side effects of Aceclofenac as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding, and stomach irritation. Has there been any change? Have you had a period, yet? Are you on any other medications?

Expired Diclofenac

I have diclofenac that was prescribed late 2006 but has no expiry date, is it still safe to use? ## Hello, Bob! How are you? I'm not sure how your country handles drug laws and expiration dates, so I can only provide you with information that I am familiar with from the U.S. FDA. From their efficacy studies, when left in the original factory sealed containers, it was found to retain full efficacy for 3 years, but once that container was opened and it was dispensed in a pharmacy/chemist's container that exposes it to the elements that cause degradation, that efficacy could only be guaranteed for one year. Learn more Diclofenac details here. it was not, however, found to become dangerous after the expiration date, but after so many years, it is most likely worthless and you should...

1 Reply RSS
My Husband is being treated for an abscess but he now has a lot of pain and swelling is it possible to take 400g ibuprofen and 100mg of Mesulid together to manage the pain. ## Essentially, this would be doubling up, since these medications are basically in the same class. Which one has your doctor instructed you to take? Was he also prescribed an antibiotic? The NIH lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding, and stomach irritation.
