I jus broke 2 fingers and tore the skin of them and got prescribed some pill with GG 739 how exactly does it help I have taken 3 in one day and hasn't helped yet ## Based on the description provided, I found your pill to be Diclofenac sodium delayed release (75 mg). Diclofenac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug, taken to reduce inflammation and as an analgesic reducing pain in conditions such as arthritis or acute injury. I am personally not aware of how potent this drug is, but from my stand point I would suggest contacting your doctor about it's ineffectiveness to your needs. However if you haven't been on the drug for very long, it may take some time to build up in your system. This is something I would ask the doctor about if it's been a while. I am just takin...

Siatic nerve...don't have time for dr....working alot....is this safe....is it bad for liver...plan on taking it for one week?.... ## Hello, Juju! How are you? You shouldn't take any medication, without your doctor's approval. This one is listed as containing the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory Diclofenac, with a complex of B vitamins that are known to help with nerve pain and overall nerve health. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation. And yes, it can be bad for the liver, since it is processed through it. One week isn't a long time to be on it, though. Is there anything else I can help with?
