round pink with GG739 on it what is it
round pink with GG739 0n it ,what is it. ## Hi Bob, How are you? From what I could gather, the round pink pill you have marked GG 739 is reportedly identified as a 75mg Diclofenac sodium delayed release tablet, used to relieve mild to moderate pain. Like other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) Diclofenac works by stopping the body's production of a substance that causes pain, fever, and inflammation. For verification of the pill's identity, this particular tablet is listed as being manufactured by Sandoz Pharmaceuticals. I hope this helps!

Diclofenac Sodium 75mg
I just took 2 diclofenac sodium 75mg at the same time. Since only one doesn't work at all. Could that hurt me ( ## Hello, Turquita20! How are you? Diclofenac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that's used to treat pain, fever and swelling. This medication may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and stomach irritation. It also carries some risks, such as causing stomach damage, increasing the risk of bleeding, causing liver damage or liver failure, so it is very important that you not take more than your doctor has prescribed. Doubling up once likely isn't very risky, but only your doctor can say for sure. It would be best to inform them, as they may want to run some blood work to check your liver function and clotting factor. Is there anything else I can...
