Hi! My doctor said I have PID and am now taking doxytet,ibumax and diclofenac. He never explain where I might have got it from. Will I be able to fall pregnant after the treatment? ## Hi Queen! PID is usually caused by an untreated STI. It can b treated. According 2 the CDC, 1 out of 8 women can have problems getting pregnant. When the time comes, if you can't get pregnant, I would c an infertility specialist. ## Thanks for the reply. I have been using protection since I miscarried a while back and have had regular check ups and pap smear. My left side of the womb has been vibrating for as long as I can remember(after miscarriage) and dr said it's just a muscle spasm. Can miscarriage be the cause? ## Hello, Queen! How are you?

Should Diclofenac Sod 75mg be discontinued before surgery?
I' having surgery and I don't know if I should stop taking this before hand. Could this drug cause bleeding? ## Have you asked your doctor or pharmacist? Diclofenac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and they can have some blood thinning effect, so it might be necessary to stop taking it, before surgery. They could also be concern about it interacting with other medications you may be given, during or after the surgery. ## how far in advance to the surgery sho stop taking it?

maxgalin side effects
My wife is having pain in back and neck from several years. She was teated with typical medicine like diclofenac and loback by an orthopedic doctor. Off late we have consulted a neurophysician few months back. He prescribed, "maxgalin er" for a month. It has given a relief for couple of months. However, we have observed a side effect that she was having internal balls like ones inside the muscles (May be nurves?) which don't have any symptoms from out side. But, they are very painful when she feels little anxiety! Even after stopping the same medicine there is no relief. After consulting the same doctor discussing it, he just changed the medicine, "maxgalin 75". The problem has alleviated much. She mentally has become too much week and so much anxious. It was so inte...

what is Auroflam-MX used for
is it a substitute for Flamar? i'm having pain from recent excesses in physical exertion. Flamar was recommended but the pharmacist gave us Auroflam ## Hello, Sorry to hear about your challenges with pain. Do you feel like the Auroflam has been helping at all? Based on my research, Auroflam-MX and Flamar are both listed as containing the active ingredient Diclofenac. So it seems as though they are one in the same medication. If you need any form of verification, Auroflam-MX is manufactured by Aurochem Pharmaceuticals Ltd., based in India. You can always contact them for a comparison of "inactive" ingredients, if you feel the need. You can also learn more about this drug on the page for Diclofenac Details I hope this info helps! ## Flamar MX is effective every time and is rea...

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...
