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?

diclofen pot 50 mg
What is the difference between diclofen pot 50mg tab mylan and diclofenac pot 50mg? I've been taking the latter of these for years however this time the script showed up as the diclofen pot 50mg mylan. Should I be concerned? Should I return it to the pharmacy? ## Hi Ron, Diclofen is actually reported to be a common misspelling or abbreviation of Diclofenac. So there shouldn't be any differences in the "active ingredients". However it is important to note that different brands/manufacturers often use a different set of "inactive" ingredients (known as binders/fillers). These are known to have an impact on the drug's overall bioavailability. Other than that, they appear to be the exact same medication and dosage. I hope this helps!
