I purchased diclofenac sodium & codeine phosphate tablets 50mg, but I cant find any images to identify it as such. It came in a foiled back pop out sleeve of 10. It's a light peach or pink color with a score on one side and nothing on the other. It also says Duranzo on it. My vision is not so good so i cant make out the pharmaceutical co. Can you help me please? ## Hello, Mini! How are you? This combination isn't available in the U.S., it is a foreign medication from India. Duranzo is listed as containing Diclofenac and Codeine, but since foreign medications aren't regulated like U.S. prescription drugs, there's no way to confirm that's what you've received. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit formin...

Diclofenac and GI upset
1 Reply RSS
I was taking motrin daily and had to stop due to GERD becoming worse. I switched to aleve and so far so good. My Dr has offered to write a RX for Diclofenac and I'm concerned if that will increase my acid stomach S/Sxs! How is that side effect with Diclofenac in relation to Aleve and Motrin? ## The risk of experiencing such a side effect is approximately the same, according to FDA reports. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, and increased risk of bleeding. Do you take anything to help prevent the GERD? 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...
