what is Auroflam-MX used for
12 Replies RSS
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
6 Replies RSS
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...
